Health Room

My name is Lea Reynolds and I am the school nurse this year.  Ms. Bertha Maldonado is our health assistant. 

We are here to help your students stay safe and healthy while learning, whether they are learning online at home, or in person at school.

As you know, school looks different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that there is much concern and stress about how we will protect your children and ourselves during this global pandemic. We want to share some information with you about what to expect from the health office this school year.


Welcome back small groups!

Each day before sending your child to school, please review the following questions regarding your child’s health.

  1. Does your child currently have a temperature of over 100.4 degrees?
  2. In the past 24 hours, has your child experienced:
    • Sore throat, runny nose, congestion
    • New frequent, dry cough (for students with chronic allergies/asthma, a change in baseline cough)
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Diarrhea, vomiting
    • Loss of taste or smell
    • New onset of headache
    • Fatigue or muscle or body aches
  3. Has your child recently been in close contact with anyone who has exhibited any of these symptoms?
  4. Has your child recently been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

If you answer yes to any of the questions:

Please do not send your child to school. Contact a medical provider or call the COVID Hotline at 855-600-3453, then call the health office at your child’s school.


APS' Medicaid Department is available to help families enroll in Medicaid or refer for other eligible services. Please call 505-855-5261 or 505-855-9820 (for Spanish speakers) for more information.

Health conditions

Chronic Health Conditions

Please let me know if your student has a chronic health condition for which s/he will need nursing support this school year.

If your student(s) will require medication or a procedure while at school, please have their provider fill out their specific form. See Health Forms. I cannot give a medication or carry out a procedure without this signed document.
