HEALTH INFORMATION/MEDICATION AT SCHOOL
Hello, I’m looking forward to working with your student this year. All medications, including prescription and over-the-counter, must be dispensed from the Nurse’s office. The El Paso County School Health Services Medication Permit with parent/guardian signature (obtained from school nurse) must be filled out and turned into school nurse. The above medication permit must be renewed annually.
MEDICATION MUST BE IN THE ORIGINAL CONTAINER.
Students may carry asthma rescue inhalers, epipens, and insulin pumps with them with physician order using the El Paso County School Health Services Medication Permit obtained from school nurse with parent/guardian signature. This document must state the student may carry his/her medication.
If your child goes to the ER and requires medication at school, please get a physician’s order using the El Paso County School Health Services Medication Permit obtained from the school nurse along with parent/guardian signature. Also, a physician’s order is needed for a student to be excused from PE. School nurse can only authorize “NO P.E.” up to 3 days maximum.
IMMUNIZATIONS: REMEMBER TO UP-DATE YOUR CHILD’S IMMUNIZATION RECORD AT SCHOOL WHEN YOUR CHILD RECEIVES AN IMMUNIZATION. PLEASE SEE TEXAS STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SERVICES CHANGES FOR IMMUNIZATIONS FOR 2016-2017 UNDER ATTACHED DOCUMENTS AND FORMS
EMERGENCY AND HEALTH INFORMATION: Please ensure you have updated contact information/health information during online registration. This information provides our school with your contact numbers and those who you have assigned as contacts in case you cannot be reached. Please include CELL PHONE numbers if available. Also, if any changes, please update your emergency contacts/numbers through the school year with Registrar, Ms. Julia Lara.
It is important the nurse be informed of any condition impacting a student’s participation at school and/or requiring some modification to their school day. Your time and support is greatly appreciated. Please don’t hesitate to call me with any questions.
