Hello I am Nancy Guzman, the new school nurse for Zavala. I am pleased to be a part of GPISD and honored to be given the opportunity to care for your children. My goal is to help keep them in school but most importantly keep them healthy. I graduated from UTA with my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing in 2006. I have worked in the hospital for most of my career but have also done home health. I am here to help provide the best quality of care to your children.
Below are some key things to consider and take note.
1. A medication permission order signed by BOTH you and your child’s doctor is required for any medications your child needs administered at school, including over-the-counter medications. These forms are available in my office as well as online under Health Services.
2. Prescription medication needs to be brought in the original packaging with the prescription label attached this includes inhalers and nebulizer treatments.
Things to Remember:
1. Please keep kids home if they are ill.
2. Students with the following symptoms must stay home for 24 hours before returning to school
*Fever *Diarrhea *Vomiting
Child must be fever free for 24 hours without the aid of medication. *This allows your child to feel better but also to minimize the spread of sickness and infection to others.
