Welcome to LEE/ISA/NESA/STEM
The health and well being of every student is our highest priority. We want to make sure we have the most up to date health information for our students. We are asking that you carefully complete a Health Information Sheet annually. Please provide an update from your child’s physician for significant health concerns such as cardiac, seizures, cancer, etc, even if medications are not needed at school.
All medication orders must be renewed each year. The appropriate forms are available from the school nurse or on the NEISD website under Health Services.
All medications that are needed during the school day, must be brought to school and checked into the clinic by a parent or guardian.
Students are not allowed to carry medications.
The only exception is self-carry authorizations for emergency asthma inhalers, epinephrine auto injectors, and diabetic supplies. These require current physician orders to self carry. Training and a pass will be provided by the school nurse, after all requirements are met.
According to district policy, district personnel are not allowed to administer, and students are not allowed to carry, homeopathic medications, vitamins, herbs, dietary supplements, and medications manufactured outside the US.
Cough drops are also not allowed to be carried at school, if needed on a short term basis, parent will need to bring to clinic and must be consumed in clinic. They must be “cough drops”, not vitamin or zinc drops.
If your child has an injury or surgical procedure that requires crutches, wheelchair, or other assistive device, please be aware that the district requires a doctor note for these devices to be used at school. Have your student report to the clinic with a copy of the doctor note. The appropriate pass will be issued based on the doctor note.
Please contact the school nurse with any question or concerns.
The clinic hours are 8:00am – 4:30pm
School Nurse: Crystal Rios, RN 210-356-0803 firstname.lastname@example.org
