Hola Lobo Family,
My name is Rita De La Cruz and I am your new School Nurse for Lehman High School. I have been in the thrilling profession of Nursing for 8 years and I am looking forward to serving this Campus and the Kyle Community. My previous work experience includes community and public health for the pediatric population.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music and I have a new-found love for cooking and trying new recipes.
I am honored to be entrusted with this role at LHS and I look forward to being a part of your Students' High School journey. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance to your students' health needs.

Christina Fehler, LVN
My name is Christina Fehler. I am excited to return for my 8th year as the LVN for Lehman High School. I have been a LVN for 12 years, and prior to becoming a school nurse I worked in many areas of nursing including family practice, student health, and public health.
I live in Dripping Springs with my husband and family. We have 3 children and 2 dogs, Daisy and Cash. In my free time, I enjoy attending my children's sporting events, camping, and hanging out with my family.
I look forward to another great year with your children, and educating them on promoting a safe healthy learning environment for all. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
