Lisa.Filbin@humble.k12.tx.us Dear Parents.As we enter the month of May please donot forget to pick up any medication from the clinic.As per district policy it will be destroyed on June 6th if not claimed including inhalers.STUDENTS entering 6th grade are up to date on immunizations and their records will follow them to the middle school they attend in the district. .Please remember if your child needs medication at school it SHOULD ALWAYS BE BROUGHT IN BY AN ADULT. ....PLEASE CONTINUE TO STRESS HANDWASHING AND COVERING YOUR MOUTHS WHEN COUGHING....PARENTS PLEASE FOLLOW OUR GUIDELINES;DO NOT SEND THEM BACK UNTIL FEVER FREE 24 HOURS WITHOUT MEDICATION....This is very important to keep these illnesses to a minumum for the teachers and other students...As we start with warmer weather please send water bottles to school with your children.. Sunscreen is very important and should be applied before any prolonged outdoor activity. Once burned the damage is done!!!....STREP THROAT CONTINUES TO BE REPORTED,EVEN WITH NO FEVER.We are also noting some FIFTH DISEASE in the building ..As always continue to check for head lice and report to me if found.
Eye doctors recommend a yearly formal eye exam. I encourage you to read the Buzz and the new parent/student handbook. They are both wonderful ways to discover how we do things at BEAR BRANCH and HISD. Please check this site often--I post current health issues going on in the building and where I am in my screening.
Thanks for your support!
