Welcome to the GTE Health Clinic!
I know this is a difficult time of uncertainty and stress. Please know that I am in this with you and want to offer my help. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me by email if you have health concerns.
The mission of Humble ISD Health Services is to enhance the health and well being of the students, staff, and community thus supporting the education of all students through maximizing their educational time.
We see our professional school nurses as:
- Supporting the individual and collective health needs of students, staff, and community
- Acknowledging the diversity of cultures within the district
- Valuing the unique ideologies of students and families
- Educating the student, staff, and community by promoting health and wellness
- Maintaining a superior level of professional competency as demonstrated by compliance with the Standards of Practice and Performance of School Nursing Practice
The most familiar job of the school nurse is to provide first aid and illness care for students during the school day. Listed below are just a few of the programs Humble ISD elementary school nurses are responsible for each school year.
