Welcome

I want to welcome you to the Bland ISD Health Services website. As a registered nurse, I serve the district by upholding the standards set forth by the Texas Board of Nursing as well as National Association of School Nurses.  In summary, the role of the school nurse is to oversee school health policies and programs and to be a leader and role model for optimal health and safety of the school community.

The school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health services and promotion of health education.   Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private healthcare provider.  The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment (American Nurses Association & National Association of School Nurses [ANA & NASN], 2011).

  • Please Keep Sick Students Home This is the time of year when children become most vulnerable to illnesses.  A child who is sick will not be able to perform well in school and is likely to spread the illness to other children and staff. We hope that your child never has to miss school because of illness or disease; however, if your child is sick please keep them home. If your child is experiencing fever, diarrhea, excessive/exhaustive coughing, and/or vomiting please keep them home until symptoms have resolved or been addressed by a physician. ****Please contact your primary care physician for any healthcare concerns******
