Janice Everitt, RN
Hello Mustangs! I am excited to join Dahlstrom Middle School this year as your school nurse. I am originally from South Africa and moved to the United States during middle school. I've been a Registered Nurse for 17 years. Previously, I worked in a hospital providing postpartum and newborn care. As my kids got older I moved into school nursing. My family recently moved to the area and our four children all attend school in Hays CISD now. Life is busy but when I have free time I enjoy baking, quilting, and boating with my family.
I look forward to working with your children, please reach out with any questions or concerns.

Medications at School
Medication reminder: Students in middle school are ONLY allowed to self-carry inhalers and epi-pens (with physician approval). Please ensure we have the appropriate authorizations on file for your student to self-carry these medications if needed. All other medications must be kept in the nurse's office with the appropriate authorizations on file. Medication Authorizations and Action Plans can be found here:
- Medication Authorization
- Asthma Action Plan
- Food Allergy Action Plan
- Non-Food Allergy Action Plan

All students must be up to date on vaccines or have a current, valid exemption form on file for the school year. Please visit here for a full list of Texas minimum vaccine requirements for school. Updated immunization records may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Exemption forms for immunizations can be requested here. If your student receives immunizations throughout the school year, please forward updated immunization records to the nurse at email@example.com.
