    Flu Season Has Hit

    The Flu Season is here. It’s not too late to get a flu shot. Should your child get the flu, stay home and recover fully. LISD fever policy requires a child who is ill with a fever MUST be fever free (less than 100 degrees), without the use of fever reducing medications, for 24 hours before returning to school. You can request your child’s school work if your child misses two consecutive days. Just call the front office.

     

    Remember to……

    Cover you Cough and Wash your Hands.

    Annual Spinal Screening - 6th Graders

    May 2nd

    During PE Classes

    Students who have provided a doctor’s spinal screening form or diagnosis of scoliosis will not be screened. The additional information, screening form and affidavit of exemption are available on the Screening link on the left of this page.

     

    Immunizations - 6th Graders

    Get a jump on required immunization for 7th Grade

    Did you receive any shots at your last physical? If you did, they probably are the ones required for 7th grade. All 7th graders must have two new shots: Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4, MCV4, MenACWY, Menveo or Menactra).   Please consider getting the HPV immunization, too. This is not required but is highly effective in preventing several kinds of cancer.

    Check out what immunizations we have on file for your child through the Skyward Family Access. Log-on and click on the Health Info tab on the left side of the page. If you have received immunizations not listed on this page, please fax (214-626-1793), e-mail (degiulioj@lisd.net) or drop off a copy of them to me, Nurse DeGiulio.

    Information on required immunizations, waivers and the recommended vaccines for pre-teens and teens are listed on the Immunizations link on the left of this page.

     

    Spinal Screening - 8th Graders

    Scoliosis Screening: Texas state law requires scoliosis screening for 9th graders. You may have this done by your doctor or during an athletic physical this Spring or Summer.   If, for religious reasons, you do not wish to be screened your parents will need to submit a notarized affidavit of exemption to the FMHS-9 nurse.  

    You may turn in screening results done this Spring to the FMS nurse. Later screenings should be turned into the FMHS-9 nurse. The screening form (on back) and the affidavit of exemption are available on the Screening link on the left of this page. Thank you.

    Go Red for Women

    February 2017

    American Heart Association Campaign

    Go Red is a national campaign to promote heart health for women. LISD participates every year. At Forestwood we celebrated it by sharing information on heart health, donating to wear Go Red T-shirts and an exclusive LISD Go Red Pin, National Wear Red Day, faculty Hands Only CPR class and our Go Red Picture Day. It was a big success and a lot of fun.
