School Health Policies

Clinic Policy Highlights
 
Please be sure to keep RenWeb updated on any changes regarding your child’s emergency contact information.
 
Parents have the opportunity to update all medical information during re-enrollment in January via RenWeb.  However, if there are any medical changes to report at any other time, please contact the nurse.
 
Students will only be re-admitted to class 24 hours after being fever free (without Tylenol or Advil), vomiting or other symptoms have subsided, no sooner.
 
Please report all communicable diseases to the nurse including flu, strep throat, chicken pox, pink eye, and skin diseases.
 
Please inform the nurse via email of any changes in your work or home phone number or if you will not be at your usual number during school hours.
 
All physical education excuses will be evaluated by the nurse. Only a physician’s note officially excuses a student from required P.E.classes. Parent's request for a child to be excused must state the exact nature of the child’s problem.
 
Diocese of Dallas School Medication Regulations
 
"When a physician prescribes medication that must be given during the school day, the parent should be instructed that such medication can be administered only when brought to the school in the pharmacist’s container, labeled with the student’s name, date, prescription number, prescribed number, prescribed dosage and physician’s name." A permission slip must also be filled out and signed by the parent. 
 
Over the counter medications can be given at school on an 'as needed' basis, but only if a permission form is filled out and signed by a parent. Parent is to supply OTC meds. Please label with student's name. 
 
Please! All medication must be delivered and picked up by parents!
No student may carry medication to or from school or have in the classroom!  
 
Medication forms may be picked up from the clinic or are available for download below. Medication forms must be in the clinic before medication can be administered.
 
It is the student’s responsibility to inform school nurse when it is time for his/her medication.
 
Any unused medication shall be destroyed at the end of the year if not picked up directly by the parent.
 
Parent is responsible for advising the school of any change in medication.
 
Thank you,
