Ashley Armstrong, RN

  • Hello Explorers! I'm excited to be back for my 3rd year at Tobias. For those who are new, I have over 14 years of experience as a pediatric nurse and am working through my 7th year as a Hays school nurse. I'm living as a San Martian Mermaid with 4 rescued fur babies. I enjoy gardening, listening to podcasts, and painting in my free time.

    If your child isn't feeling well, has a severe injury, or required surgery, please fill out my Tobias Student Injury/Illness Form

News from the Nurse

  • Please do not send medications in student's pockets or belongings for them to take later. Medications must be kept in the nurse office. Any medications at school needed longer than 10 days needs parent and physician authorization, must be unexpired, and must come with their original prescription label. Short term medication, for less than 10 days, we do still need parent authorization and we must follow labeled instructions. 

    Health screenings  are required by Texas state law. Each year we have school wide vision and hearing screens for PreK, Kinder, 1st, 3rd, 5th as well as students that need a screen for other reasons. We also screen for Acanthosis Nigricans in 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade. On November 17 we will screen for Scoliosis in 5th grade girls. Please email me if you have questions or your child loses/breaks their glasses and you need help getting a new exam/pair.
