Joshua ISD employs a full-time licensed nurse at each of the five elementary campuses, Loflin Middle School, Joshua Ninth Grade Campus/New Horizon High School, and Joshua High School. The nurses insure that all immunization requirements are met, provide vision, hearing and other screenings in accordance with State Law and Regulations, and provide medical care to students as needed. It is the aim of the school nurse to help provide a safe and healthy environment for children to learn at their optimal capacity and provide professional care for those who become ill or injured at school.
The Joshua ISD School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) consists of community members, parents, students, and staff. The role of the Council is to review and discuss practices in the district concerning the education and provisions for nutrition, school health services, counseling and guidance, school environment, and employee wellness. The SHAC meets at least four times per year. If you are interested in becoming a member of the SHAC, please contact Melta Sprinkles, the Director of Student Services, at 817-202-2500, extension 1015.
