If possible, parents are advised to give medication at home on a schedule other than during school hours. If it is necessary that a medication be given during school hours, the following regulations must be followed:
IF MEDICATION IS NOT IN ITS ORIGINALLY LABELED CONTAINER
IT WILL BE DESTROYED AND NOT GIVEN
Ask your pharmacist for an extra bottle to be kept at school when you are bringing prescription medicine. Over the counter medicine must be brought in its original, sealed container. All unused medicine will be destroyed if not picked up by the parent by the last day of school.
Texas Health and safety code, Chapter 37, requires all children to undergo screening for abnormal spinal curvature
Girls will be screened two times, once at age 10 (or fall semester of grade 5) and again at age 12 (or fall semester of grade 7).
Boys will be screened one time at age 13 or 14 (or the fall semester of grade 8).
If your child has a history of seizures or a known seizure disorder, please provide the physician signed seizure action plan along with any rescue medications.
