    School Nurse
    Hello, my name is Amanda Schwartz and I am the School Nurse at Roosevelt High School. I have been a nurse for 12 years, practicing in a wide variety of specialties. I grew up in Bellevue and graduated from Interlake High School. I went to Bellevue Community College where I obtained an Associates Degree in Nursing, and from there went to Washington State University where I obtained my Bachelors in Nursing. I have a son who is a sophomore in high school, at a different school.  I am passionate about suicide prevention and sexual assault prevention.  I volunteer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and am the advisor to the Roosevelt Suicide Prevention Team.  I also work as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner for Harborview. 

    Contact Information:

    Amanda Schwartz, BSN, RN
    Roosevelt High School Nurse
    4610 NE 66th St

    I am responsible for the health and safety of all students and staff in the building.  The health services I can provide to students include health screenings (vision, hearing, scoliosis), illness and injury assessment, medication administration, first aid, and emergency care. I also actively participate in health education and health promotion.

    I work closely with the Roosevelt Teen Health Center.  The Teen Health Center is located inside the school and is operated by NeighborCare.  Any student enrolled at Roosevelt High School can schedule an appointment to see our medical and mental health providers by having a parent or guardian complete the registration forms online.  You may also complete a paper copy and return it to the school-based health center.

    Things that I need to best help your student are:

    • access to current telephone numbers;
    • medication forms on file for any medications your student may take at school; including over the counter medications.  We need these forms both for medications your student takes in the Nurse's Office or medications they carry themselves.  Medication Authorization Form
    • information regarding any health-related issue that may impact your student's ability to learn, attend class regularly, or to get about the building safely (completing and returning the Health Registration form is a good start.) I especially need to know about life-threatening health issues such as diabetes, seizures, or allergies with possible anaphylaxis.

    If your child is sick, please review the following document to determine if they are able to come to school while sick or not.  Is My Child too Sick to go to School?

    Immunization Information

    Washington State law requires ALL students to be immunized against certain diseases, a certain number of times, in a specific sequence in order to attend school. If your high school student has not had the following immunizations they may be prevented from remaining at Roosevelt until it can be proven that they are indeed current. If needed, your child can access immunizations at the Roosevelt Teen Health Center.

    Those students who are not in compliance with the state law should have received notification from District Health Services this summer as to what immunizations were incomplete and were to have attended to addressing this deficit, and informing Health Services of the new/additional dates.

    • 4 DPT/TD with the last one ON or AFTER the 4th birthday. A booster should be given every 10 years but this is not required for school attendance though recommended.
    • 3 Polio (OPV or IPV--only IPV is given now) with the last one ON or AFTER the 4th birthday.
    • 2 MMR (Measles) with the first ON or AFTER the 1st birthday, the second anytime after 30 days but usually given by the 6th grade.
    • 3 Hepatitis B vaccines--the series is usually completed within 6 months.
    • 1 Tdap after age 11

    In addition the Center for Disease Control recommends the following vaccines for the teen population: HPV (cancer) MCV (meningitis), Hepatitis A and the annual Flu shot/Flu mist.
