Medication Policy Highlights
Parents, please bring all medication to the school nurse. Elementary school students are not allowed to bring medication to school (see last paragraph for exceptions).
The law does not permit a school nurse to administer medication unless it was provided by the parent with a signed Medication Permission Form.
Medication must be in its original container with the medication name, dose and instructions on the label, not in zip-lock bags, blister packs or dosing syringes. A school nurse cannot administer expired medications.
A parent's permission form is valid for only 2 weeks.
A physician's signature is required for medication that will be kept in the clinic longer than 2 weeks.
Children with chronic medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, seizures and allergy with risk of anaphylaxis, etc.) who might require treatment at school are required to have an Emergency Action Plan or Care Plan that is completed and signed annually by their physician. You can download these plans from the "Forms" page of this website and get them signed during the summer. Please schedule some time to visit with me when you drop off the form(s) and your child's medications so that we can both feel confident that I have all of the information I need to take good care of your child.
The law permits students to carry and self-administer medication for asthma, diabetes and anaphylaxis if the parent and physician agrees that the student is capable of self-administration. There is a box on the emergency action plan or care plan that parents and physicians can check and initial to indicate that they have given permission.
Attention 5th grade parents
Please plan on picking up any epi pens, inhalers and/or OTC
medications from my clinic on the last day of school (05/25/18).
In anticipation of sending your child to HCMS, please read the information above re. Medication Policy Highlights. The same applies for middle school. Plan on getting action plans and medication forms up to date this summer to turn into the HCMS nurse before the first day of school. I have extra forms in my office if you need them.
Re. vaccinations, there are two shots recommended but not required for incoming 6th graders: Meningococcal and Tdap. These shots are REQUIRED before entering 7th grade. If your student has a waiver for reason of conscience, please make sure the dates are current.

Hello! I am so privileged to be the nurse at Bridge Point Elementary. I have been a nurse for 20 years and I truly love it! It's never dull and keeps my mind fresh and my hands dry and scaly from washing them a million times a day.
I grew up in San Antonio and went to the University of Texas (Hook 'em!) for college/nursing school. I've worked primarily at St. David's hospital in the maternity unit and surgery. I moved to school nursing after sub nursing in EISD. This is my fifth year as a full time school nurse and it is super fun!
My husband (Jeff) and I have been married 18 years and have two beautiful kids that are quite a bit older than this picture above. Cate is in 8th grade at HCMS and plays volleyball. Lane is in 5th grade at BPE and loves lacrosse and singing and acting. My favorite family member is my dog Chewy, a super happy golden doodle that doesn't require me to carpool her anywhere and keeps the drama to a minimum.
Please reach out with any questions/concerns. My contact info is listed above. It's going to be a great year!
