2021-2022 Updates to Health Clinic Procedures
Hello! My name is Jessica Vanderslice and I am the school nurse for Killian Middle School. I am an LISD alumni, having attended LISD schools from elementary through high school. I graduated from TWU with a Bachelor's of Science in Nursing degree and am a Registered Nurse with the Texas Board of Nursing. Please see below for LISD health policies and procedures and links to health forms.
Going to the nurse's office:
- Students should always notify their parent from the Health Room/Nurse Office if they are feeling ill and need to go home. Failure to call from the Nurse’s Office will result in an unexcused absence. If your student texts requesting to go home, please instruct them to get their teacher’s permission to come to the health room.
Reasons the School Nurse will Recommend a student go home:
- Temperature of 100 or above
- Signs and symptoms of strep throat or flu
- Symptoms of "Pink Eye"
- Witnessed or continual vomiting
- Multiple episodes of diarrhea
** District policy states that students must be fever-free, with no vomiting or diarrhea (without the use of medication), for 24 hours before returning to school.**
- Students may carry over the counter medications in their original container with a note from parent(s) or with the form titled 'Permission to carry over the counter medications'.
- Prescription medications must be brought to the nurse with a note from parents. All medications must be in the original container and prescribed for the student. Students may self-carry most non-narcotic prescriptions once approved by the nurse. Any controlled substance, narcotic and some other medications will need to be kept in the health room and given by the nurse.
- Asthma inhalers may be carried by students with the form 'Emergency Medication Self-Carry Agreement'. Please call the nurse with any questions.
- Students with life threatening allergies should carry emergency medication while at school and are encouraged to keep extra in the health room. Please notify the school nurse if your student has any prescribed emergency medication, such as an Epi Pen, and complete the 'Allergy Action Plan' and 'Emergency Medication Self-Carry Agreement' forms.
