As Director of Health Services for Spring ISD, I want to personally welcome you back to school and wish you all a very healthy 2018-2019 school year.
One way to stay healthy is to complete your State Required Immunizations.
Immunizations prevent or decrease the spread of childhood diseases like Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Chicken Pox among other contagious diseases. These diseases can make you feel very sick and can have long-lasting complications.
Please make sure you are up to date with your vaccines.
If you have any questions, please contact your campus nurse.
Please follow the weather forecasters to know how to dress for school. Due to very high temperatures please drink lots of fluids and stay indoors during the hottest time of day 12:00 NOON- 3: 00 PM, when temperatures or heat index is over 97 degrees. Please do not forget to use sunscreen.
Jeanne Parker RN, DON
