Parents all medications must be brought to the nurse’s office by the parent or guardian. Students cannot have any medications on them and this includes cough drops. All parents must fill out a medication administration form allowing the nurse to give those medications. A doctor’s signature is also required on the form for any prescription medications or over the counter medications lasting over 30 days. Parents may sign in medications such as Ibuprofen and Tylenol if the use is for less than 30 days.

All prescriptions brought to the clinic must come with the prescription label.

All medications will be thrown out on the last day of school if not picked up by the parents. Notices will be given to parents to remind them to pick up their child’s medication. 

IMMUNIZATIONS

Download Information: English and Spanish

In order for children to be enrolled in any Texas Public School, they must have completed their immunizations that are required to enroll.  Some students qualify to be on a catch-up schedule if coming from out of the country. This will be determined by the School Nurse at Registration. If a student is on a catch-up schedule they can only enroll if they have their first round of 6 shots completed. Those are DTAP, Hep B, Hep A, Varicella, MMR, and Polio. 

LICE

Download Information: English and Spanish

Parents if the nurse discovers your child has lice at school, you will be called immediately, but the child is not made to leave school that day. However information will be sent home with the student about how to treat for the lice and the next morning the child must be WALKED in by a parent so the nurse can check the student’s head with the parent present. This is a way that the nurse can check to make sure the lice are completely gone and if by chance they are not, the nurse can help teach the parents on how to properly get rid of the lice. Lice removal can be very tricky.
