Christi Chabarria, RN

  • I am a registered nurse with 15+ years of nursing experience. I have been a school nurse here at Barton for 7 years. I am married  and we have 2 wonderful children. My husband is a cardiac nurse in Austin. We live in Mountain City and both of our children are students at Hays CISD. I stay busy with family activities, reading, and spending time with friends and family. 

    School nursing has been very rewarding and challenging and I look forward to many more years. I thank you for the opportunity of caring for your children. I will use each encounter with your children to promote wellness, teach and provide my best care to the children. I am always available for questions, comments, or concerns.

     School nursing is a professional registered nursing specialty that involves identification, assessment, prevention, and intervention to remedy or modify students' health needs. The nurse's goal is to promote the optimum health of students and the students' abilities to achieve their individual educational goals.

    Nurses monitor required immunizations, perform mandated health screenings, track communicable diseases, plan for emergencies and provide direct care to students. Please use the links to the left to learn more about Hays CISD District Health Services.

    We would like to assure you that medical information about your child is treated as confidential by the nurses and all school staff.  We do not share information about your child with outside parties nor can we discuss the health concerns of any other student with you.

News from the Nurse

    Attention all incoming 7th grade parents.........

    Texas state law requires that all children attending school be immunized against certain vaccine preventable diseases or have a valid Reason of Conscience/exemption form. Student’s entering 7th grade are required to have boosters.


    The following immunizations are required for all students prior to starting 7th grade or have a valid Reason of Conscience Exemption Affidavit on file. 

    •  TDAP
    • Meningococcal Conjugate

    Emails from the nurse have been sent out to all current sixth grade parents that current records show we need documentation of these vaccines. 


    If your student has actually had these immunizations, please obtain a record from your health provider showing each dose of vaccine and the full date (month/day/year) administered OR a VALID, ORIGINAL Reason of Conscience/exemption form.  Bring this documentation to the school as soon as possible, but not later than the first day of school. Your doctor’s office will not provide records to me without your consent. Without documentation, your student will not be able to start school in the coming year or receive their schedule until records are current.

    If your child has not had these vaccinations, please schedule an appointment as soon as possible to obtain the needed immunizations and then provide those records to the school. Appointments can be difficult to obtain near back to school time so please take care of this matter as soon as possible. 


     All medications given at school will need authorization from your child's doctor. You can find medication forms for the next school year on the medication at school tab on my homepage or under student health services tab for the district.

    If you have any questions or if you need a copy of your child’s current immunization record,  email the school nurse at the following. I will check my email sporadically throughout the summer and respond as able.
