Amanda Brady, RN
I am starting my first year here as the school nurse at Science Hall Elementary. I have been a registered nurse for 3 years with a background in High Risk Labor and Delivery and Geriatric Home Health. I also have a background in EMS and have worked in both non-emergency and emergency ambulance systems since 2004. My husband and I live here in Kyle with our 2 daughters, one of which is a Kinder student here at Science Hall Elementary. I am so excited to have joined the Science Hall family and am looking forward to a great year!
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 the 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 health concerns of any other student with you.
News from the Nurse
The flu season is upon us. It is a good time to review ways to help keep our children healthy. Here are a few tips to stay healthy:
- Wash your hands often
- Cover your mouth and nose
- Stay home when you are sick
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
- Practice other good health habits such as: Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious foods.
- Get your Flu shot!!!
Please remember if your student has been diagnosed with the flu to submit paperwork from the physician's office to let us know of the confirmed case of influenza.
In order to return to school after an illness, student's must be 24 hours free from fever, diarrhea, or vomiting without the use of fever-reducing or anti-diarrheal medications.
