Waco ISD school nurses will strive to minimize absences by early identification, prevention and intervention of student health needs while creating a safe and caring environment.
Waco ISD employs Registered Nurses (RN), Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN), and Clinic Aides (CNA/CMA) to meet the health care needs of our students. Nursing employees provide quality and preventative health care to all students. They perform basic first aid, track immunization requirements, dispense medication to students, following individualized health plans, conduct state required vision, hearing and spinal screenings and provide classroom instruction on hygiene, infection control, and disease.
Parents are encouraged to join our Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC) meetings.
We want to assure you that Waco ISD is doing their part in educating staff and students on reducing the spread of disease in school. Please go to http://www.waco-texas.com/cms-healthdepartment/ for the most up to date information on viruses identified in the United States. Please contact your campus nurse for any questions or concerns.
If you need to pick up your child's medication, please call the campus directly to schedule a time to do so. Some campuses may have specific pick up days scheduled. You may also email your child's nurse. Please see the "Who is My Nurse" tab on this page. The WISD email address template is firstname.lastname@example.org
The announcements above are intended to keep Waco ISD Students, Employees and their families informed about the latest health concerns in the district.
