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).

  • Mumps: What you should Know In response to the recent news reports in regards to an outbreak of mumps in identified counties in Texas, I wanted to provide our school community with information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  If at anytime this outbreak reaches our community we will work diligently with the Hunt County Health Department to ensure that our students are protected.  While vaccination against mumps is the best protection against mumps infection, vaccinated individuals may still become infected. If you/your child experience(s) mumps symptoms, please contact your healthcare provider and inform them of your exposure to mumps.

  • Anaphylaxis (Severe Allergic Reaction) Anaphylaxis is a serious life threatening allergic reaction that requires immediate medical treatment. Common examples of potentially life threatening allergies are to foods such as peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, and eggs).  Some individuals experience severe allergic reactions to stinging insects (bees, wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, and fireants), medications, latex, or while exercising. The emergency treatment is epinephrine, which is usually supplied in epinephrine auto-injectors (example: EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® or Auvi-Q®). While Bland ISD strives to be an Allergy Aware district we cannot guarantee an “allergy-free” environment at school. Bland ISD is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the safety of every child who has allergies.  Parents are required to fill out a Food Allergy ...
