Nurse Notes:
 

YOUR CHILD’S HEALTH MATTERS

 

The Childress Independent School District (CISD) Nurses believe that the ability to learn at school is related to the status of a student’s health.

School nurses strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children and staff. They identify and assist in the removal or modification of health-related barriers to learning.

 

School nurses are supportive partners with parents by ensuring their child's safety through skilled professional care and monitoring of their child's treatment and medical needs.

School nurses are supportive partners with teachers through their early nursing interventions that decrease school absenteeism and increase the instructional time inside the classroom.

 

The CISD School Nurses are the health advocates for all the school children and staff providing preventive health, health assessment, and referral services. The CISD Nurses may be contacted at the following phone numbers.
