Orland Unified School District School Nurse
 
My name is Michelle Dobbs and I am the School Nurse for the Orland Unified School District. I am very excited to be a part of this school community. I am an OUSD alumni and now have a child attending within the school district. I graduated from McMurry University in Abilene, Texas with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Nursing. I started work as a Medical-Surgical Nurse at a west Texas hospital and then spent five years working in Public Health with a nearby county. I truly enjoy working in and promoting community health and look forward to working with our community here at OUSD.

COVID-19 Information

According to the CDC:  Children & teens can get COVID-19.
While fewer children have been sick with COVID-19 compared to adults, children can be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19, can get sick from COVID-19, and can spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to others. Children, like adults, who have COVID-19 but have no symptoms (“asymptomatic”) can still spread the virus to others.
Most children with COVID-19 have mild symptoms or have no symptoms at all. However, some children can get severely ill from COVID-19. They might require hospitalization, intensive care, or a ventilator to help them breathe. In rare cases, they might die.
CDC and partners are investigating a rare but serious medical condition associated with COVID-19 in children called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C). We do not yet know what causes MIS-C and who is at increased risk for developing it
