Armstrong has a wonderful registered nurse, Kim Oliver, who is entering her seventh year as Armstrong's school nurse, and is joined by assistant Ashley Porter who helps daily from 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Our nurse is part of the team in caring for your child while at school. She is trained to handle emergencies, provide first aid, and also perform hearing and vision screening for kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grade and all new to district students. She also provides health care for students with special needs, allowing children to function well within the classroom and to be safe and well cared for during their school day.
Health lessons are taught to the students and staff by the nurse throughout the year. Additionally, the nurse ensures immunization compliance for all our students under Texas state law.
If your child has a special health need, such as diabetes, seizure disorder, anaphylactic food allergies, etc., please email or call our school nurse to arrange a time before school starts to discuss your child's needs. There will also be forms outside the clinic for you to fill out if your child needs to take a prescription or over the counter medication while at school. Some of these forms will need to be filled out by your child's doctor or signed by the doctor.
Please keep your cell phones close to you even if they are on silent! We may text you regarding your child should they become ill, need medication or have an emergency during the school day!
Please call the school nurse with any questions you may have! Nurse Kim Oliver is eagerly looking forward to meeting you and your children!
