Immunizations

State law requires that all students entering Texas schools provide complete written proof of immunizations at the time of registration. During the school year when immunizations become delinquent you will receive a letter reminding you. You will need to get the immunizations by the specified date and provide proof of the update.  Your child will not be allowed to attend school until we receive the documentation of the updated immunization.

Medications

All medications must be brought to the clinic by an adult. Children are not allowed to carry any medications to school – this includes cough drops. Prescription medication will be administered only in accordance with the instructions on the label. Long-term medications to be given all year or for emergency situations must have a Medication Administration Request completed by the physician and signed by the parent. Non-prescription medication will be administered only on a 10 calendar day basis and with written parent/guardian permission. This form will be completed in the clinic when the medication is brought to school. All unused medication will be picked up by the parent or designated adult.

Keeping your child home/going home sick

Children with fever cannot be in school. If your child develops a fever of 100.0 or greater at school you will be called to take them home. We recommend that they stay home until they have been fever free and Tylenol/Motrin free for 24 hours. If your child has a fever at home, please DO NOT send them to school even if you have given Tylenol or Motrin.  Once the medication has worn off, the child will start feeling bad and they may be exposing the other children in the class to illness.

Helpful Hints

Please remember to pack a change of clothes in your child’s backpack. Children of all ages have various accidents requiring them to change clothes during the day. We do have some clothes in the clinic, but they are in limited quantities, and we would hope to save you’re a trip to the school in the middle of your busy day. Also, remember to put in warmer clothes when the weather starts to change
