Blair Powell, BSN, RN
Hey Ranger Family, my name is Blair Powell and I am happy to serve as your school nurse at Wallace Middle School. I am entering my 9th year as a school nurse, and I have been a nurse for 16 years. I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The University of Texas at Austin, Hook Em Horns!!! Prior to school nursing, my background was in Women's Health, working in the clinic and hospital setting. My husband and I happily reside in Buda, Texas and we are proud parents of 3 beautiful children, whom also attend Hays CISD schools. In my spare time I love traveling home to Castroville, Texas (just outside of San Antonio), to spend time with my family and lifelong friends. I look forward to an awesome school year of health and wellness with your students at The W! #RangersWeWillBe

News from the Nurse
Attention 6th Grade Ranger Parents/Guardians:
Please be aware of the state mandated immunization requirements that will impact your rising 7th grade student. Students entering 7th grade are required to have proof of the following two vaccines prior to receiving their schedules: One dose of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine and one dose of Meningococcal Conjugate vaccine.
Please be mindful that proof of the vaccines must be received by our Campus Nurse prior to your student beginning the 2018/2019 school year, as well as receiving their new schedule. You can deliver the immunization record to the campus or send them via fax to 512-268-1853. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Blair Powell RN at 512-268-2891.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, please be proactive and get your child’s vaccines completed as soon as possible.
