Dripping Springs ISD is fully committed to the health and well-being of all students. In recognition of this, Dripping Springs ISD provides a full-time registered nurse at every school. The nurse serves as a liason between school personnel, the student's family, our community, and healthcare providers to advocate for student health and a healthy school environment.
DSISD nurses monitor required immunizations
, perform mandated health screenings, track communicable diseases, plan for emergencies, and provide direct care to students and staff.
We would like to assure you that all medical information concerning your child is treated confidentially by the nurses and all school staff. We do not share information about your child with outside parties nor can we discuss concerns of any other student with you.
All DSISD campuses have an emergency supply of epinephrine and diphenhydramine HCL (Benadryl) that nurses may administer in the event of an unexpected, undiagnosed, anaphylactic (life-threatening) allergic reaction.
Parents of children with known anaphylaxis are expected to provide an individual supply of emergency medication(s) and an emergency action plan
), signed by their child's physician, to the nurse at the beginning of each school year.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
Each campus has at least one Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for use during an emergency.
Below are the immunization requirements from the Texas Department of Health. Information also can be found at the website: www.ImmunizeTexas.com. Individual student immunization records are available on Family Access.
