Our Health Services Mission:
To provide and promote coordinated school health services
for every child in Northwest ISD.
Every Kid, every day.

Notice: Our nurses are now on Summer Break.   Clinics will reopen on August 6 at which time nurses will be available to answer phone messages and/or meet with you as needed.  For urgent issues during the summer break, please contact the Coordinator of Health Services.  Please see other Frequently Asked Questions below:

Q: Can I forward shot records to my nurse during the summer?
  
A: Please verify that you have the correct contact information by using the Contact School Nurse list on this page.   Nurses will receive the information but may not respond before August 6.   You may also drop off shot records when your campus office is open.   Please refer to your campus website for summer hours.

Q:  Do I need to submit shot records during the closure and/or summer?
A: Yes, please continue to upload shot records as part of online registration and preparation for 2020-2021.  If you are unable to upload, please email shot records to rebekkah.bazley@nisdtx.org.     Incomplete shot records WILL delay registration for the 2020-2021 school year.   PLEASE sign up for one of our shot clinics if your student needs shots for the 2020-2021 school year.  

Q:  Will medications from the 2019 to 2020 school year be saved for next year?

A:  Medications that are not picked up by May 22 (in some cases, sooner) will be destroyed per NISD Policy.   We are unable to keep medications from year to year.   For the 2020-2021 school year, you will need a NEW Medication Administration Form and will need to bring medication to your campus nurse in August, 2020.  

Q: Is my nurse available for questions related to health and illness during the closure?

A: Yes, your nurse is still working to support students and families through May 22.   It is easiest for us to respond by email so please use this as the primary means to reach your nurse.   If you do not have email access, please leave a message on your nurse's clinic phone.  ***Nurses' last contract day is May 22.   After that, please address any questions to rebekkah.bazley@nisdtx.org.  

Our first priority in Northwest ISD is to keep students safe.   In addition, we assist students to be comfortable and promote a healthy lifestyle. Each campus has a full time Campus Health Coordinator who assesses students throughout the day to determine if complaints are urgent and/or if students are able to remain in class.  Each Campus Health Coordinator also assists to identify and address chronic health conditions.  We also monitor immunizations, perform state mandated health screenings and promote wellness throughout the year. Each school is equipped with a health room or clinic area that is designed to treat minor injuries and provide a temporary place for students to stay if they become ill at school.
