Diana Rosenbaum, BSN, RN
I'm excited to have the opportunity to serve, as the new campus nurse, to such a unique school as Live Oak Academy. I'm currently in my 3rd year as a school nurse, and have been a nurse for 10 years. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Texas Tech University Health Science Center, wreck 'em tech! Prior to school nursing, my background was in cardiac care in a hospital setting for 3 years, and then an after hours urgent care clinic, for both adults and pediatric patients, for 4 years. My family and I have lived in Buda for the past 10 years. My husband and I have two elementary age rascals that also attend a Hays CISD school. In my spare time I love traveling and exploring with my family (a piece of my heart is at Destin beach in Florida), all things artsy crafty, and music of all sorts. I'm excited for an "owl"some year of health and wellness both mentally and physically with your kiddos. #HCISDPrideBeginsWithYou #LOAknOWLedge

News from the Nurse
Flu season is unfortunately still hanging around. Please consider taking your student, for their flu shot, to their doctor or local pharmacy. As a friendly reminder good hand hygiene is vital during this season, as well as covering any coughing and or sneezing, and staying at home with any vomiting or symptoms of illness that include a fever of 100 degrees. Students will need to remain home until 24 hours fever free without the assistance of medication, as well as, no vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.There has been a lot of talk in the news lately about the recent measles outbreaks here in various parts of Texas. Please keep the school nurse informed and updated if your student presents with any of the symptoms consistent with Measles or has traveled to one of the outbreak areas. Seek medical attention sooner than later for any concerns or signs and symptoms of disease.
