Nurse's Notes

There will be an immunization clinic for 6th graders held at Timberview on April 7 beginning at 8:00 AM, sponsored by the Tarrant County Health Department. More information on that will follow.

There will be a second immunization clinic held at Timberview on April 29th, from 4:30 - 7:00PM. The flyer associated with it is here in the eMonday folder.


We have begun to see some flu cases at Timberview. If your child has been diagnosed with the flu please notify the school nurse as she needs to report only numbers of cases to the state. Please review the attached flyers and the information below. Please call the school nurse if you have questions.


Please consider the following:


  1. Flu Vaccine is still the best protection against the flu. It is not too late! Please ask friends, family, patients, students and all to get the flu vaccine early.
  2. Decisions about starting antiviral treatment should not wait for the laboratory confirmation of influenza. Tamiflu and Relenza work best when started within the first 48 hours of symptom onset.
  3. Preventive health practices such as staying home when sick, keeping distance from symptomatic individuals, washing your hands often, covering your cough and sneezes are very effective social tools of reducing the spread of flu.

For more information, please visit www.cdc.gov/flu/


If your student needs an Epi pen, the following site offers you a copay card or coupon up to $100 off. https://www.epipen.com/en/copay-offer
