Important Information

Please keep a change of clothing in your child's backpack or classroom. Even big kids fall in the    mud, and our supply of extra clothing is very limited in the clinic.

If your child is sent home from the clinic for fever of 100.0 or greater, diarrhea or vomiting, he or she may not return to school until symptom free without the use of preventative medication and toleration of food and liquids for 24 hours. If your child is kept home from school by you, the same rules apply.  A doctor's note does not supersede the "24 hour rule".  This is per KISD policy.

PLEASE make sure your child's emergency contact information is up to date with the front office.  These are the phone numbers used to contact you if your child becomes ill or injured at school.

Call the school nurse if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious condition such as pink eye, strep throat, chicken pox, head lice, impetigo, ringworm, flu or has vomiting and / or diarrhea.

Please call the school attendance clerk at (281) 237-8505 any time your child is absent from school.  A parent note must accompany the child's return to school.  A doctor's note is required for absences of consecutive 5 days or more.

About immunizations: The Texas Department of Health requires all school age children to be up to date on immunizations. Children are excluded from school until the required immunizations are obtained and a copy is given to the school nurse.

Head checks are done at school to any student showing signs of lice. Children with lice are excluded from school until proof of first treatment is sent to the nurse. Parents, it is always a good habit to check your children on a regular basis at home. Please contact the school nurse with any questions

Please encourage your child to start each day with a healthy breakfast. Look at the lunch menu with your child and encourage healthy choices. Remind your child that food / snacks are not to be shared at school. Doctor's letters are required yearly for food and milk allergies. The proper form(s) MUST be completed for ALLERGIES (food or environmental). Please notify the nurse prior to school if your child has food allergies, especially allergies to nuts. 

Please feel free to contact the school nurse with any concerns or questions. We expect our parents to keep the school nurse up to date with any changes in your child's medical information including any medications administered at home. Remember to inform the school of any changes in your phone numbers, including emergency contacts, to your child's enrollment information card.

Forms are available from the clinic for medication administration at school. All medication � even cough drops must be brought to the clinic, and require a parental permission form.

All prescription drugs dispensed through a physician's office must be in their original pharmacy container or packaging and labeled by the pharmacist or physician. The label must include:

  • The student's name.

  • The physician's name.

  • The name and strength of the drug.

  • Amount of drug to be given.

  • Frequency of administration.

  • Date prescription was filled.

All nonprescription drugs must be in their original container. The written request for administration of these over-the counter drugs, made by parent, guardian, or physician, must contain the following information:

  • Full name of student.

  • Name of drug.

  • Amount of drug to be given.

  • Scheduled hours when the drug is to be given.

  • Reason drug is to be given.

  • Date.

  • Appropriate signature.

All prescription and non-prescription drugs to be administered or kept at school for longer than 15 days must be accompanied by a written request signed and dated by the prescribing physician and the parent/guardian requesting this service.
