The Mission of Registered Nurses in Allen ISD is to provide professional nursing care and to promote a safe and healthy environment that contributes to academic success.
Welcome! My name is Cindy Harvey, RN, school nurse at the Norton clinic. The students may call me Mrs. Harvey or Nurse Cindy; I am happy to respond to either. I am a graduate of Baylor University and have been a nurse for over 35 years, working part of that time in ICU and ER nursing. I am glad to be a part of the team here at Norton Elementary School. My husband and I have 5 children and believe that children are a precious gift. I will care for your child as I would care for my own.
I try to make the clinic an easy place to come to if needed. My goal is to care for the students and assist them with the ability to stay in class as much as possible. I rarely call parents on a child's first clinic visit, but have the student try class again. Frequently, they do not need to return to the clinic that day.
Allen ISD has specific guidelines about dispensing medication and those guidelines are located in the Student Handbook. Any medicine that is needed by a student during the school day must have an AISD Medication and Authorization form completed by the parent or guardian. This form as well as the Allergy Action plan, Asthma Action plan, Seizure Action plan, Nutrition Services Medical Statement form, and Diabetic forms are all located on the Allen ISD Website under the Forms section of Health Services. These forms should be completed by the health care provider and parent each school year if the student has a medical need that may necessitate care for one of the conditions during the school day. In addition, you may also locate, view, and print your own student's immunization record at any time under the health section of Family Access. Clinic visits to the nurse are also documented in Skyward and visible to the parent under the health section of Family Access.
Texas Public School Immunization Requirements are also found on the Allen ISD Website on the Health Services section. Simply click on the link to access the most current information!
