• Welcome to the Nurse's Corner

    DVMS Parents and Guardians:

    Please add these numbers to your frequent contact list:

    Nurse's office: 623-445-3310 or 623-445-3311

    Attendance line 623-445-3390

    Nurse's Email: 

    elizabeth.cody-mollenhour@dvusd.org

    Please let us know if you change your phone numbers or address during the school year.  In the event of an emergency, we must have working phone numbers to be able to reach you. Please understand that we will only release your child to people listed on the emergency card and that a photo ID is required when signing your child out.  We will never add people to the emergency card during a phone conversation. All medications are to be stored in the health office (nurses’ office) and a signed medication administration form must be on file in order for that medication to be given to your child.  Never send your child to school with medications (prescription and/or over-the-counter).  Contact the school nurse for all medication issues. Please contact the nurse if your child requires an epi-pen or inhalers since these must be kept in the health office unless a signed self carry form is on file permitting your child to keep the inhaler or EpiPen on them at school. If your child is ill or injured please contact the health office so the nurse is aware and can excuse your child from PE if necessary. Please contact me if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Nurse Cody

    The World We Live In

    We don’t answer our phones if it’s an unknown number

    because we think telemarketing calls are a bummer.

    No one’s worth talking to if we didn’t program their name.

    They can always leave a message that we’ll check just the same.

    But maybe it’s the school nurse and something has occurred.

    Maybe Billy, Bobby or Sue’s eyes are now blurred.

    Or even worse, maybe something more serious has happened.

    Maybe Billy, Bobby or Sue’s toe just got flattened.

    There’s a chance your child is in my office bawling

    so please program your phone so you see I am calling.

    It’s so easy to be your child’s hero --

    just program “School Nurse” as 623-445-331zero.
