Welcome to Havard Elementary Nurse's Corner
My name is Cyra Torres, I am the new school nurse at Havard Elementary. At Havard Elementary School, our goal is to foster the growth, development, and educational achievement of all students by promoting health and wellness in a safe and supportive environment.
Note to parents
We ask parents to keep emergency contact information up to date so we can easily contact you regarding your child while at school. If your child has a medical condition that requires attention while at school, please give me a call at: (832-386-3723).
To ensure the health and safety of all students, any students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever >100.0 F the morning of or the night before school, must be excluded from school. Students may return to school as follows; free of fever (<100.0F) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin). Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve symptoms. Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication, must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.
Please contact me if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious condition such as COVID-19, strep throat, chickenpox, pink eye, impetigo, ringworm, flu, or has vomiting and/or diarrhea.
IT IS IMPORTANT to notify the nurse if your child has any allergies or other medical changes that arise during the school year. A doctor’s note is required yearly for any food and milk allergies with a treatment plan. Your doctor may recommend having an epi-pen at school.
Injuries or recent surgery, students need a doctor’s note to refrain from strenuous physical activity. It is the parent's responsibility to send a note to school to excuse the child from PE and/or recess.
Please pack an extra set of clothing, including underwear and socks, in a plastic bag for your child in their backpack. It is comforting to have your own clothes in case of an accident. Also, please note that flat, closed-toe shoes with Velcro or lace-up are much safer than sandals and flip flops and help to prevent injuries.
We are excited to serve you and your family this year. Let us have a Safe, Happy and HEALTHY year!
