About Nurse Arabie

Hello Eagles! I am Nurse Arabie, school nurse at Highlands Junior. I am a graduate of UTHealth Cizik School of Nursing, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. I previously worked in the Pediatric ICU before transitioning into school health. This will be my third year at Highlands Junior. I am here to provide a safe and healthy environment for our students. I look forward to seeing everyone! GO EAGLES!

Important Reminders

Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year. In the efforts of illness prevention and wellness promotion the health services department would like to share the following important parent/guardian reminders:

  • Please send a change of clothing (weather appropriate) for your child to keep in their backpack. Children, no matter what age, often have spills, bathroom accidents, slip in the mud, etc. and need to change their clothing while at school.
  • All medication should be dropped off and picked up from the school clinic by a parent or guardian. Students are not allowed to carry or self-administer medication while at school. Cough drops are a medication and should be delivered by an adult to the nurse.
  • Any medication that needs to be administered during school hours will require paperwork to be completed and signed in the school nurse’s office prior to medication administration. Some medications may require paperwork that needs to be signed by a physician.
  • Please call or make arrangements to meet with the school nurse to discuss any health issues or medical concerns you may have regarding your child as soon as possible. This will help bring awareness of all health conditions on campus and allow us to better accommodate your student and their learning environment.

Health Guidelines

In the interest of illness prevention, we are asking for your cooperation with the following guidelines:

  • Students with a fever of 100.0 or greater should not be sent to school. All students should be fever free for 24 hours with no fever reducing medication before returning to school.
  • Students should be free of diarrhea and/or vomiting for 24 hours before returning to school.
  • Students with obvious symptoms of any contagious disease such as pink-eye, impetigo, or undetermined rash should be evaluated/treated by a physician and return with a written release from their doctor’s office.
  • Please review our districts safe return to school plan located on the district website and complete the COVID self-assessment with your student each morning before coming to school. 

We wish you all a healthy school year and appreciate your help and cooperation with these matters.
