*Notice to Public: I am employed full-time by CISD as the district nurse, and I am at all 4 campuses throughout the day. We do not have a full-time nurse for each campus.
Maintaining student health and safety is a top priority at CISD. We provide professional health services to the students that become ill or injured while at school and also perform yearly vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings. We know that healthy students learn better and have a greater chance of reaching their potential in the classroom. Keep in mind that even though we offer these services, they are no substitute for regular health care provided by physicians, dentists, optometrists or other health care professionals.
