FBISD clinic procedures you will find helpful:
All prescription and over the counter medication must be brought to school and picked up by a parent or adult. We ask this of our parents so that we can protect all students. Medications brought to school by children can be lost on the way, drop out of backpacks, or shared with other students. I know life is busy and work hours vary. Please call me if this is difficult, so that we can work out a solution.
In order for us to dispense medication a parent note is required, which includes, name of medicine, dose, and time to be given. A doctor's prescription is required for all asthma medications, or any medicine to be given more that 15 days.
I know perfect attendance is important to our students. It is a great goal to have. However, there are times when your child is too sick to come to school. If your child is running fever (100.00 or greater in the the past 24 hours), vomiting, or having diarrhea the morning of school, please keep your child home. I know it is tempting to give them medicine for these conditions and send them on to school, but that simply masks the illness. Sending tem to school when they are ill tends to prolong their recovery and spread their illness to others in the classroom. We ask that you keep your child home until they are fever free for 24 hours without taking fever reducing medications like Tylenol or Motrin.
You will be contacted to pick your child up from school for the following reasons:
- temperature of 100.0 or greater within the pst 24 hours
- vomiting or diarrhea
- undetermined rash
- feeling too ill to remain in school
Bathroom accidents happen....please send an extra pair of clothes to keep in your child's backpack.
I look forward to providing a healthy and safe learning environment! Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at 281-327-3199.
