    Hi!  I am Jamie Miller the School Nurse at Legend Springs School in Glendale, AZ.  I consider it a privilege to serve the students, staff and parents at Legend Springs and encourage you to let me know any information that will help me provide the best care possible for your child.  The Health Center is located in the Administration Building next to the main office. 
    Important:  Please check out the Baked/Processed Birthday or Celebration Treats List (see Severe Allergy/Food Allergy page) before bringing treats to the classroom to be shared at school. https://snacksafely.com/safe-snack-guide

     Health Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 3:45.  Stop in anytime!
    For any questions or concerns, please contact me at 623-376-4510 or 11.  You may also e-mail me at Jamie.Miller@dvusd.org .
    Any messages or emails sent/left Monday through Friday by 3:30 will be return within 24 hours.  I can usually respond the same day but please know that I will get back to you within 24 hours. If a message/email is left after 3:30 pm on Friday, I will get back to you Monday morning.

    Learning Goals:
    1.  Each student will recognize when to report illness and/or injury to the School Nurse to facilitate optimal treatment and recovery.
    2.  Each student will demonstrate effective germ-killing procedure when washing hands.
    The Health Office provides on-campus health screenings, assessment, and education as well as first-aid and nursing care for students and staff.  The Health Office is NOT A PRIMARY CARE FACILITY OR URGENT CARE.  By law, the nurse is not allowed to make a medical diagnosis or prescribe treatment.  This includes medications.  I cannot keep stock medications like tylenol, ibuprofen, benadryl, anti itch creams or cough drops.  You must provide all medications you want your child to have to me in the original containers and have a signed permission slip. When accidents or illness occur during school hours, basic first-aid and/or emergency care will be given according to AZ State Board of Nursing standards and practices.  The nurse may suggest further medical follow up in certain circumstances.  Further care and follow up is the responsibility of the parents. 
        Hearing & Vision
           Hearing and vision screenings are done on all kindergarten students, new (to district) students, and all students who receive services through the special education department.  In addition, students in the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 6th grades are also screened.  Parents and teachers can request a screening for any student at any time when a concern arises.  Vision screening for Legend Springs students was done on September  26th and 28th 2016.  Vision referral letters are sent home to notify parents if the students have difficulties with any portion of the screening.  Hearing screening was conducted on October 5, 2016.  Students who have difficulty with an initial hearing screening will be tested again in 30 days, and if still having problems, will be referred to an audiologist.  Parents will be notified with a referral letter.
