FBISD School Health Services program is dedicated to creating a culture of wellness that supports student success.
A Registered Nurse is assigned to each elementary and middle school campus while a Registered Nurse and Licensed Vocational Nurse are assigned to each high school campus. The school nurse assists students' physical, mental and social growth by providing a health services program that assesses, evaluates and improves the health of students and staff.
Please contact your school nurse regarding your student's health issues and concerns, hospitalizations and/or treatment changes.
About the Nurse
Hello! I am the new school nurse at Heritage Rose Elementary. I was a Surgical Technologist since 2001. Later, I became a Registered Nurse and completed my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Texas - Galveston. I have worked in the operating room, pediatrics floor, retina specialist office, and other school districts.
I was born and raised in South Texas and a beachcomber at heart, yet I love my cowboy boots. Tambien hablo español. I am handy with my hands, tearing down walls and building anew. Just like building a shelf or a house, building great minds and healthy bodies brings me great satisfaction. I enjoy life and traveling; capturing those moments that mean so much on film, although digital is okay, too.
While not at school, I spend time with my husband, David, daughter, Ashleigh Anne, and four-legged baby, Suzie Tu. And, they keep me very busy.
I am teamed up with two awesome clinic assistants, Carla Jones and Carmen Maciel, who have supported this clinic for many years. They are who sustain me when providing quality care to the students of Heritage Rose. Ms. Jones can be found assisting in the clinic in the morning while Ms. Maciel can be found assisting in the clinic in the afternoon. I am happy to have such a wonderful team.
Let's have a wonderful and invigorating New School Year!!

Vision, Hearing, Height and Weight Screens
Each year, it is required that students in pre-k, kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, 5th grade, and students who are newly enrolled in the district undergo vision and hearing screens as well as a check of their height and weight. Only a check of height and weight is performed on students in the 2nd grade and 4th grade. For students who do not pass a vision or hearing screen on the first attempt, a second attempt is made and, if the student again does not pass, a referral letter is sent home with the student to encourage the parent/guardian to take the student to a physician for further assessment. If you receive a referral letter pertaining to vision or hearing results for your child, please return the indicated portion of the referral letter to the clinic after your child has been seen by a physician. Our utmost priority is to ensure that our students are able to see and hear to the best of their ability, as this will indeed affect their classroom performance.
