Boone Elementary School

Health Services/Nurse

The school health team consists of a registered school nurse (RN), Rebecca Schieck, and a student health assistant (SHA), Maryke Benner. They assist students when they come to the health room. They have alternating scheduled hours at each campus they serve. They provide basic care for illnesses, injuries and chronic medical conditions.  If your child has a chronic medical condition such as asthma, seizure disorder, diabetes, or anaphylaxis, please contact the RN for a plan of care. The health room telephone number is 512-414-5318.

Covid Testing Resources

On-campus Health Room Testing: 
Rapid tests are currently available in campus health rooms for in-person students and staff that are showing COVID-19 symptoms. The health of our students, staff, and families is the district’s top priority.  School nurses are focused on regular school nursing duties required for the health and safety needs of all students on campus, especially those with complex and chronic medical conditions. At this time, we are prioritizing COVID-19 rapid testing for on-campus, symptomatic students and staff. Testing must be arranged and confirmed with Health Room staff and the consent form must be completed prior to testing. The form must be downloaded, completed and emailed to rebecca.schieck@austinisd.org or printed and presented at the time of testing.

Pruebas en la sala de salud en el campus:
Actualmente, las pruebas rápidas están disponibles en las salas de salud del campus para los estudiantes y el personal en persona que muestran síntomas de COVID-19. La salud de nuestros estudiantes, personal y familias es la principal prioridad del distrito. Las enfermeras escolares se centran en las tareas escolares regulares de enfermería requeridas para las necesidades de salud y seguridad de todos los estudiantes en el campus, especialmente aquellos con afecciones médicas complejas y crónicas. En este momento, estamos dando prioridad a las pruebas rápidas de COVID-19 para el personal y los estudiantes sintomáticos en el campus. Las pruebas deben coordinarse y confirmarse con el personal de la sala de salud y el formulario de consentimiento debe completarse antes de la prueba. El formulario debe descargarse, completarse y enviarse por correo electrónico a rebecca.schieck@austinisd.org o imprimirse y presentarse en el momento de la prueba.

AISD COVID-19 Hub Testing Sites

Students and staff have access to a free rapid antigen testing program through partnerships with Concentric by Ginkgo, Goodside Health and ACCU Reference Medical Lab.

Why it matters: Research shows that the more people get tested, the safer everyone is from the spread of COVID-19.

Students and staff can get a test at will for any reason, whether you’ve been exposed or are just looking for peace of mind. This is an opt-in program, so no one will participate if they don’t want to.

Only individuals with completed consent forms can get a test. Completing the consent form takes about five minutes on a computer or smartphone. If you have more than one child, please complete the form for each one. Please note that the consent form is specific to each testing provider.

You’ll be able to access rapid antigen tests at 11 sites across the district.

*Reminder: The Austin ISD COVID-19 testing hub sites follow the district calendar and are closed when campuses are closed.

Medication at school

The health office does not stock any medications. If a medication needs to administered at school, an authorization for administration, available below, must be completed by the parent and given to health office. All medications must be in the original, labeled container. Prescriptions must have the prescription label with the child's name, prescribing physician, dosing instructions, and current date. All medications must be picked up at school. It cannot be sent home with a child.

Here are some general guidelines to consider:

  • A child with a fever greater than 100 degrees will be required to be picked up from school. The child must be fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication before returning to school. If your child has a fever at home, please do not give them fever-reducing medication and send them to school.
  • If your child is vomiting due to illness, please keep them at home. If vomiting occurs at school, the health team will contact you. If vomiting continues at school, you will be asked to pick them up. Vomiting can be contagious.
  • Pink eye is a red eye with yellow or green discharge that is caused by a bacterial infection. It can last 4-7 days. This infection can be easily spread. Frequent hand washing  is the most important method to control the infection.  A child with an infection must stay home until the discharge is gone or you have a note from your doctor stating your child is under their care.

Lice

AISD follows the state protocols for addressing lice. Parents will be notified if live lice are found or nits are found. Students can remain at school.  Children should be treated that night. Students can return to school the next day with documentation of treatment. We are no longer able to do "class checks" to identify who else might have lice. Boone does extensive cleaning in rooms where lice has been found. Treating lice is not only treating the child who has lice but is an extensive process of cleaning at home to elminiate the lice.
