Hamilton Southeastern Schools values the health and safety of all of our staff and students, therefore, a full-time registered nurse serves each school building. The role of the school nurse is to care for students who have been injured or become ill during the school day as well as to facilitate care of students with acute or chronic health conditions. If you have specific questions about your child or his/her health matters, please feel free to contact your building nurse.
The School Nurse is responsible for:
- Administration of medications
- Management of medical conditions that occur during the school day including, but not limited to asthma, severe allergies, diabetes, and seizures
- Assessment, care and treatment of minor illnesses and injury that may occur during the school day
- Health Counseling
- Prevention and Control of communicable diseases
- Monitoring immunizations for each student as required by the State of Indiana
- Health screening for students including vision
You can also reference our District Health Services page for more information.
If you have questions that are not included on our District Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page, please contact your building nurse for assistance.
Meet FCJ's Nurse! Mrs. Hillary Hughes.
I’m a mom of two, both which attend HSE schools. After working in the hospital setting, I transitioned to school nursing in 2021 and started at Fall Creek Junior High in the fall of this year. If I’m not in the school clinic, you can usually find me at my kids’ sporting events or traveling with my family. When I’m not dressed in Falcon blue, I love supporting anything IU. I feel so fortunate to be part of the Falcon family at FCJ this year.
