Immunizations are required by Texas law. You will be notified when your child needs further immunizations. If you take your child throughout the school year for immunizations, please update the clinic by bringing a copy of your new immunization.
EXTRA SET OF CLOTHES
In case an accident happens, please ALWAYS have an extra set of clothes in a Ziploc bag in your child’s back pack.
It is required that illness/injury, that occurs at home be taken care of at home and that student do not go directly to the clinic apon arrival to school.
To ensure the safety of the entire school population, please do not send an ill child to school (vomiting/diarrhea, fever, severe cough, communicable disease, chills, unexplained rash). We are not allowed to TREAT any illness. Fever needs to be absent (without medication) for 24 hours before your child returns to school. Students are not to report to the nurse before reporting to class. A fever is considered 100.0.
A student will not be allowed to remain in school if he/she complains of any of the following:
- temperature of 100º or greater
- vomiting and/or diarrhea
- an undetermined rash
- feeling too ill to remain at school
When returning to school after an absence, the student must bring a note from the parent/guardian explaining the absence. Even if the student was picked up from the nurses office and will be out due to illness the next day, you are still required to provide an written note for the absence.
All medications (prescription and non-prescription) must be furnished by the parent/guardian and appropriate medication administration forms must be completed by the parent/guardian. Medication will be delivered to the clinic by the parent/guardian in the ORIGINAL and PROPERLY LABELED container and must be picked up by the parent/guardian or another adult which the parent/guardian can designate. The nurse and/or clinic assistant will administer all medication in the clinic with the exception of students that are required by their physician to carry inhalers or epipens with them at all times. In those situations, the doctor must provide written orders to the school. STUDENTS, ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY AND BRING MEDICATION TO SCHOOL. IF THIS HAPPENS, THE MEDICATION WILL NOT BE ADMINISTERED. A PARENT WILL HAVE TO PICK THE MEDICATION UP AFTER SCHOOL OR COME TO SCHOOL AND FILL OUT THE APPROPRIATE PAPERWORK. THE MEDICATION WILL NOT BE GIVEN BACK TO STUDENT.
Please give medicines at home whenever possible. When given at school, they must be in the original container and have a signed note (Parent Request for Administration of Medication) giving permission for school personnel to administer. Long-term (10+ days) medication requires a yearly doctor's order form and changes require a new order.
ALL KINDER STUDENTS MUST BE COMPLIENT WITH ALL IMMUNIZATIONS PRIOR TO ENROLLMENT IN SCHOOL
