Welcome to Bush!

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Bush! As the school nurse, the health and well-being of our students is the highest priority. Your assistance with the procedures listed below is very important in helping us keep your child and our campus healthy and safe. Please read the following and feel free to stop by the clinic or call any time if you have questions.

  1. Please complete and return “Student Health Data Form” in Skyward. Each year we ask that you please complete this form so that we will be aware of your students’ health needs. Please call with any additional information or anything you feel needs to be discussed.

  2. Elevator Keys/Crutches/Extra Time Between Classes. If at any time during the school year your student is on crutches or in a wheelchair, you must provide a doctor’s note indicating specific needs (use elevator, crutches, etc.). An elevator key will be issued. A $20 deposit  is required and will be returned upon receipt of the key.

  3. NEISD Medication Policy
    • All medications must be kept in the clinic.

    • All medications must be brought to school and taken home by a parent or guardian. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BRING MEDICATION TO SCHOOL

    • Medications must be accompanied by a “Medication Administration Request” form signed by both the physician and the parent.

    • The administration of non-prescription medication is permitted only on a very limited basis and only with written permission from parents/guardians. Only medications with appropriate dosages and indications will be accepted. Medications without a physician's order will be administered for ten (10) school days. A physician's order will be required thereafter.

    • All medications must be in the original container with a pharmacy label attached.

    • SELF-CARRY medications require new paperwork to be filed EACH YEAR. A parent must bring current orders and medication to the clinic to begin the self-carry process.

    • Cough drops and throat lozenges will be administered to students with written permission from parents/guardians for five (5) consecutive school days, up to two (2) occurrences per school year. With written parent/guardian permission, students may use up to two (2) cough drops or lozenges per day; they must remain in the clinic while the cough drop or lozenge dissolves to decrease the risk of choking.

 ***You may download medication forms on our website***

  1. Immunizations: Please bring an updated shot record when your student gets a shot so we can enter them into our system and file them in their health record. 

We look forward to working with each of you this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at 356-2903 or email:

Thank you again for your cooperation and understanding. Have a wonderful year!
