Hello! My name is Leigh Kelly and I am excited to be your student's school nurse at Stewart Creek Elementary this year. I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from The University of Texas at Arlington. My background is in oncology and pediatrics. I enjoy educating on all things health and wellness.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Joseph and we have 2 awesome children. Madelyn is in 8th grade and Collin is attending DBU. We also have a sassy french bulldog named Piper. We have been a part of the Montgomery community for over 16 years and wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
Open communication is important. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great first year at SCE! Go Trailblazers!

It's Cold and Flu season. Don't forget to get your flu shot for your family! https://www.cdc.gov/flu/
Action Steps for Parents to Protect Your Child and Family from the Flu and other Contagious Illness this School Year
As you know, cold and
flu season is upon us again. We have had children absent from school
with diagnosed cases of the flu as well as other contagious illness,
(Strep throat and the good ole common cold among them). Please read the
following information and share with your children.
Symptoms of FLU Symptoms of the Common Cold
POLICY STATES THAT YOUR CHILD MUST BE FEVER FREE FOR 24 HOURS (AND NOT
ON FEVER REDUCERS) FOR 24 HOUR PERIOD AFTER RUNNING A TEMPERATURE OF
100.0 OR GREATER IN ORDER TO RETURN TO SCHOOL. If your child is sick,
it is important for them to stay home from school, rest, and drink
plenty of fluids. If your child is truly sick, he/she cannot do his/her best at school and risks exposing others to the same illness.
SIMPLE STEPS FOR KEEPING YOU AND YOUR CHILD HEALTHY
medication is generally available for the flu, but must be taken within
the first 24-48 hours to be effective. At this time of year, with the
flu season so high, it may be difficult to find.

has a NO Live Lice Policy concerning head lice. A child that is found
to have live head lice will be sent home. Please do Not send a child to
school that you know has live lice. The child is not to return to
school until they have been properly treated and all live lice are gone
from the hair. After treatment is done at home, the child must return
to the school nurse for inspection BEFORE returning to the class room.
If live lice are found, the student will be sent back home. If nits
(eggs) are found the child will be monitored by the school nurse.
Please retreat your child one week after the first treatment as any
missed eggs may hatch and causing the problem to start over again.
What are Head Lice?
are parasites, little insects that live only on human scalp and hair.
Away from the scalp, lice can survive only 1 – 2 days. Head lice are
harmless, however may cause extreme itching. The female louse attaches
approximately 60 – 150 eggs (nits) to the hair shaft near the scalp with
a cement-like substance. The average life span of each louse if
untreated is 30 days.
How are they spread?
lice are spread by direct contact with an infested person or indirectly
by sharing clothing, bedding, combs, brushes, upholstered furniture in
home and car etc. Lice cannot jump or fly; they are only capable of
crawling. Lice and nits are responsible for transmission from one
person to another.
Where are they found?
(eggs) are most commonly detected at the crown of the head, behind the
ears and at the nap of the neck. Nits firmly attach to the hair shaft,
close to the scalp and are very difficult to remove due to the cement
like substance they produce. Dandruff, hair sprays etc., are commonly
seen during examination (careful attention needs to be made to avoid
misdiagnosis due to the similarities in appearance). Nits are difficult
to remove from the hair shaft. Dandruff is easily flaked away from the
hair shaft. A bright light or sunlight helps to visualize the nits.
