Dealey Dragon Update

Nurse Updates

COVID testing - Our COVID testing kits have expired. I have been working with the district to get more, but the district is unsure when they will get a new supply. If you need a COVID test for quarantine or otherwise, please visit for a testing site near you.

Immunizations - Delinquency letters will go out again next Thursday 10/14. Middle school parents, I need Tdap and Meningococcal vaccine records ASAP. Help me to save trees and keep your students in school. DISD policy requires exclusion from school if immunization criteria are not met by October 31st. This was not in place last year due to COVID. If you have already reached out to me about immunization delinquencies, I apologize in advance if you receive another letter. If you need to file an exemption affidavit, you can do so here. They need to be renewed every 2 years. If you need resources for vaccines, or have any questions regarding compliance, please reach out to me. There are many free immunization clinics around the metroplex. You can find the DISD immunization policy and requirements here.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR KIDS HOME IF THEY ARE SICK. Threw up this morning before school and doesn’t feel better after? Keep them home. Headache, cough, and sore throat? Keep them home. Fever and/or diarrhea? Keep them home, and they can’t return until fever/diarrhea free for at least 24 hours without the use of medication.

Office hours - My office hours are Monday through Friday 7:45am - 3:45pm. That being said, it is a small miracle when I am able to leave the office on time. Please do not block the entrances to the staff parking lot in the carpool lane.
