A STRONG MEDICATION POLICY IS A STRONG DRUG POLICY.

Medication must be brought by a PARENT to the school nurse, NOT by a CHILD! (Not even 1 pill)

 

Parents/Guardians must bring ALL medication to the school clinic and pick up any unused medication from the clinic.FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL STUDENTS, MEDICATIONS WILL NOT BE SENT HOME WITH STUDENTS AND STUDENTS MAY NOT BRING MEDICATION TO SCHOOL.

 

Students may not carry ANY type of medication (prescription, non-prescription, homeopathic products, vitamins, or over-the-counter health products) on their person, in their lunch box, purse, or book bag/backpack, on the school bus, or place these types of items in their locker. There are severe disciplinary consequences, including suspension and assignment to an alternative education program or expulsion for possessing, carrying, distributing or placing over-the-counter and prescription medications in the places listed above.

 

 

 

NO SHOTS, NO SCHOOL,

NO KIDDING. 

 

 

Health Screenings:  Mandatory Screening Programs are conducted by the School Nurse in accordance with state law and the Texas Education Agency recommendations in each program.  Parents/guardians are contacted by the school nurse and a referral letter is sent should a problem be identified.  The child’s physician/dentist should return a report to the school nurse within 30 days.

 

  • VISION AND HEARING SCREENING: Students in K, 1st, 3rd, & 5th grades are screened annually, as well as new students to Texas, by teacher request, and referrals to special education.
  • ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS SCREENING: Students in 1st, 3rd, & 5th grades are screened annually.
  • SPINAL SCREENING (SPINAL): Students in the 5th grade will be screened to identify small spinal curves for referral for early observation and treatment before the spinal curve becomes severe.
  • DENTAL SCREENING- A visual dental screening is conducted annually in February for 3rd grade students by a volunteer dentist from the community coordinated by the NEISD School Health Advisory Committee.

  • GROWTH AND ASSESSMENT- all students are weighed and height is measured annually at the beginning of the school year. 

 

Should any parent/guardian have a question regarding any of these screening programs or wish to have their child excluded due to religious reasons, please contact me at 210-407-2421
