 ILLNESS POLICY:

KISD Administrative Regulation FFAD is in place to ensure the health and safety of all students and states that students who exhibit vomiting, diarrhea, or a fever ≥ 100, must be excluded from school.

 

Re admittance is allowable as follows:

Free of fever (<100) for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Common trade names of products containing these medications include, but are not limited to Tylenol, Motrin and Advil. All aspirin-containing products should be avoided.

Food and liquids have been tolerated for at least 24 hours without vomiting and/or diarrhea, and without the use of medication to relieve symptoms.

Students diagnosed with a contagious illness that is being treated with prescription medication, must complete a minimum of 24 hours of the prescribed medication dosage prior to returning to school.

2021-2022 COVID-19 Information:

Self-Prescreening: The best way to prevent the spread of illness in our schools is to stay home when ill.
Students should not attend school if they have a fever of 100.0 F or higher or new onset of any of the
following symptoms of illness that may include:
· Loss of taste or smell
· Cough
· Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
· Headache
· Chills
· Sore Throat
· Congestion or runny nose
· Exaggerated shivering
· Significant muscle pain or ache
· Diarrhea
· Nausea or Vomiting
Washing and sanitizing hands often, especially before eating, after using the restroom, after blowing your nose, after coughing or sneezing, and after coming in to contact with highly touched objects such as door knobs, handrails, etc. can help reduce the spread of illness.
 

Facial Coverings

· Facial Coverings will be optional for all staff and students (grades PK-12) to wear at their personal discretion
and preference.
· Katy ISD will continue to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) including hand sanitizer
for all employees and students.
· Campus clinics will have facial coverings and other PPE items available for any employee or
student upon request.
 
 

Individuals who test positive for COVID-19:

Katy ISD is required to report positive cases to the respective County Public Health Office and the Texas Education Agency. Students positive for COVID-19 should complete the COVID-19 Positive Self-Report APP. In addition, parents should notify their child's campus attendance office.

· Student should isolate for ten days after the date of symptom onset or test date if asymptomatic as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Control (CDC).
· Student must be fever free for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications before returning to school.
· Student must be diarrhea and or without vomiting free for at least 24 hours without the use of diarrhea and or nausea-suppressing medications before returning to school or work.

District administrators will continue monitoring the situation along with any updates in requirements for
exclusion from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
 

Individuals who have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (refer to symptom list above) should:

· Consider isolating to prevent the unintended transmission of the virus to others as
recommended by the CDC.
· Consider seeking medical guidance from your health care provider.
· Consider testing as recommended by the CDC.
· Consider wearing a mask or face covering if respiratory symptoms are present and if you choose
not to test for COVID-19 to prevent the unintended transmission of the virus to others.
Students should not be sent to school when ill. The school nurse will assess students who become ill during the school day and parents/guardians will be contacted as needed. Students with a temperature of 100.0 F or higher, active vomiting and/or diarrhea, or any other signs of a communicable condition will be excluded from school until the readmission criteria for the conditions are met as required by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
 

Individuals who have had close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 should:

· Consider self-isolating for 14 days after the date of last contact as recommended by the CDC.
· Monitor for symptoms consistent with COVID-19 for 14 days after the date of last contact as
recommended by the CDC.

the 14-day quarantine period.

 MEDICATION POLICY

Pill Image.png

Children are not permitted to carry medication, including cough drops. ALL MEDICATION must be administered from the clinic. Parents are asked to contact us if your student will need to have medication on campus so we can send you the correct forms for the type of medication and make an appointment for you to drop the paperwork and medications off.  ALL medication must be in the original container. All prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy container with the child's name, medication date and dosing instructions. Medications directed to be administered 3 times per day, or every 8 hours, are to be given at home.

*There are no "stock medications" in the clinic such as Tylenol, Tums, Neosporin, etc. Medications can only be sent for the student by the parent or guardian.*



 

IMMUNIZATION POLICY 

Texas state law and KATY ISD requires that all students have current immunizations, have a current physician-provided medical exemption, or a current state-issued affidavit for reasons of conscience exemption on file in order to attend school.

Immunization Requirements

· COVID-19 vaccines are not required for staff or students. According to the CDC, COVID-19
vaccines are safe and effective and recommended for all eligible individuals.

 

HEALTH & NUTRITION                                                                                

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. Nutrition Image.png

The proper form/forms 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.

HEAD CHECKS

Head lice is no longer an excludable health condition; however, KATY ISD will still exclude for LIVE LICE but no longer require proof of treatment, just that when they return, they must be assessed by the nurse, accompanied by a parent, and be FREE of LIVE LICE before returning to class.  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.

 

CLOTHING

Clothing will not be available from the clinic so it is important to have an extra set packed! Every student should have a change of clothes (including underwear + socks) rolled up or placed in a baggie in the bottom of their backpack. This prevents the parent from being called to the school for a change of clothes. Clean clothing may be necessary for a food/drink mishap in the cafeteria, as well as for bathroom accidents. 

 

SCREENING FOR VISION AND HEARING

All grades except 2nd and 4th are screened for vision and hearing. Parents may call the nurse to request a screening if they have concerns about their child's vision or hearing. Parents will be contacted by the campus nurse if their child has failed the school screening, and a request for professional exam will be sent home.

 

SCREENING FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES

Acanthosis nigricans (ANTES) is a skin condition that signals high insulin levels in the body. It is believed that higher than normal insulin levels in the bloodstream cause growth of darkened skin over parts of the body (neck, knuckles, elbows, knees, groin or stomach). These markings (darkened skin areas) can help identify persons who run risk of developing diabetes in the future. The campus nurse will do ANTES screening of students in 3rd grade. Parents will be notified by phone and by a written referral letter which recommends a physician's evaluation and lab study.

 

  ***COMMUNICATION***

Please ensure that the campus nurse is updated with any changes in your child's medical information. It is also important to provide the school with correct and updated phone numbers. If you have changes, please contact the Attendance Clerk.   If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the campus nurse for assistance.
