Mission Statement of NEISD Health Services
Health Services, through excellence, professionalism, and collaboration, leads the North East community in promoting and supporting life-long positive health habits to assist all students to achieve their maximum learning potential and to become well-rounded, productive, and responsible members of society.
Our Olmos clinic staff abides by our district’s mission and cares for the well-being of each and every student. Our goal is to collaborate with parents, administration, and educational staff to ensure the delivery of necessary health care and promote healthy habits.
School Nurses and clinic assistants have many responsibilities. In addition to providing basic care for cuts, scrapes, and minor injuries they are also responsible for:
Hearing and Vision Screenings for all pre-Kinder, Kinder, 1st, 3rd, and 5th graders
Growth assessment for all student pre-K through 5th grade
Spinal screening for all 5th graders
Dental screening for 3rd graders
Acanthosis Nigricans screening for all 1st, 3rd, and 5th graders

All students entering Texas schools must abide by state law and provide complete written proof of immunizations at the time of registration. You may receive a letter during the school year when immunizations of the student become delinquent - as a reminder. You will need to provide proof of the immunization administration date. Your child will not be allowed to attend school until we receive the documentation of the up-to-date immunization.
Students are not allowed to carry medications to school (this includes cough drops, lip balm, and any over-the-counter medication or vitamin). All medications must be brought to the clinic by an adult. Prescription medication will be administered only in accordance with pharmacy label instructions and physician orders. Long term medications must have a Medication Administration Request form completed by the ordering Doctor and signed by the parent. Non-prescription medication may be administered only on a 10 day calendar basis with the completion of a short-order form from the parent/guardian. This form is completed in the clinic when the medication is brought to school. All unused medication is to be picked up by the parent or designated adult.
Keeping your child home / picking up your child due to illness
Clinic staff will contact you if your child develops a fever of 100.0 degrees or greater. The student has to be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has fever and you administer Tylenol/Motrin and chose to send them to school you may be masking symptoms. You will also be exposing other children to illness. You will be contacted if your child presents other symptoms of illness that may require your attention and or if your child sustains an injury. For the protection of your child and everyone on our campus, please keep your child at home if any of the following is present: fever; nausea; vomiting; diarrhea; rash with unknown cause; questionable communicable disease; persistent cough or sore throat; or itching, red eyes with drainage.
