School Health Services
Alvin ISD school nurses are proud to be a part of every child's education. Success in school is directly related to the good health and the emotional well-being of each student.
Responsibility for the care of children lies primarily with the parents. If your child becomes ill or has an emergency at school, it is important that the school nurse or administrator be able to reach you immediately. Please make sure that the school has accurate telephone numbers listed for you and your emergency contacts. Please remember to update any phone numbers that change.
The nurses and clinic assistants in Alvin ISD are here to assist and support parents and teachers in their efforts to maintain good health in their children. We are always happy to have you call with questions or concerns about your child's health. Please feel free to visit your child's school clinic at any time. It is our goal to educate the children, beginning in elementary school, to take control of thier own health care management, so that they can grow up to be strong and independent. Below are some links regarding illness management at school and guidance about when a child is sent to the clinic. Please note that Alvin ISD school nurses work closely with the Brazoria County Health Department in developing guidelines for the treatment of illnesses at school and on the specific criteria for the exclusion from school.
Remember, our goal is to keep children in school. We try hard not to send children home unless they are ill or present a health threat to others. The very best way to control the spread of germs and to keep children healthy is to routinely wash hands with soap and water.
