Nurse Griffin

My name is Darcy Griffin, RN, and I am your new school nurse here at Mathews! I worked with kids for 7 years before going to nursing school. I got my degree at Dallas College and for the last two years I worked as an RN at Presbyterian Dallas on an Orthopedic MedSurg floor.

When I’m not at work I love trying new restaurants, watching a good movie, shopping, and spending time with family, friends and my 3 fur babies.

Very excited to be here at Mathews and looking forward to getting to know all the students and families. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have!

When to keep your child home
  • Our students are our most valuable resource. In recognition of that, Plano ISD provides a registered nurse at each campus.  The school nurse serves as a liaison between school personnel, family, community, and healthcare providers to advocate for student health and a healthy school environment.

    School nursing is a professional, registered nursing specialty that involves identification, assessment, prevention, and intervention to remedy or modify students' health needs. The nurse's goal is to promote the optimum health of students and the each student's ability to achieve their individual educational goals.

    Nurses monitor required immunizations, perform mandated health screenings, track communicable diseases, plan for emergencies, and provide direct care to students. Please use the links to the left to learn more about the Plano ISD District Health Services.

    We would like to assure you that medical information about your child is treated as confidential by the nurses and all school staff.  We do not share information about your child with outside parties nor can we discuss health concerns of any other student with you.
