Here you will find virtually all the information you will need regarding campus and district guidelines for student illnesses and medications.
Your child is required to be up to date on all immunizations in order to attend school. If or when it is found that your child is behind on a vaccination, the nurse will send a note home. Be sure to check their take-home folder daily. There are many resources in the community that offer free or reduced-cost vaccination clinics. Please call the nurse to find out about these opportunities.
If you choose not to vaccinate your child, you must turn in a notarized, original state-issued affidavit for "Reasons of Conscience" to the clinic.
Katy ISD policy requires that students with vomiting, diarrhea, or fever of 100 degrees or greater MUST stay home. They must remain at home until symptom-free for more than 24 hours without the use of medications, such as Tylenol, Motrin, Immodium, Pepto Bismol, etc. If your child has been diagnosed with an infectious disease (ex: chickenpox, measles, strep throat, pink eye, lice, etc), please notify the nurse as soon as possible. If they have been injured and must refrain from strenuous physical activity, it is the parent's responsibility to send a note to school to excuse the child from PE and/or recess.
Students may NOT carry medication with them at school. All medication must be turned into the nurse in its original packaging and must be accompanied by the district Medication Permission form (refer to the Quick Links box to the right to find these Clinic Forms) or a hand written note from a parent, including:
Certain medications cannot be administered in the school setting. Please call the nurse for further information.
Every child should eat a well-balanced breakfast before class each day to help them remain focused on classwork. Please refer to the Breakfast Ideas listed on the right of this page.
Please make sure your phone numbers and emergency contact numbers are updated regularly, so we may contact you immediately if your child becomes ill.
Please pack an extra set of clothing for your child, including underwear and socks. Keep it tucked in your child's backpack for emergencies.
Flat, closed-toe shoes that lace up are much safer than sandals and flip flops.
