Nurse's Notes: All students and staff should start off each day with a healthy breakfast. Just like a car needs fuel to run, our minds and bodies require refueling with the best possible nutrients available. Remember, we need healthy food to perform to Wildcat standards. Cold and flu season is upon us, so please remember to cover when you cough or sneeze. In addition, try to keep your hands clean to prevent unwanted illnesses. If you are unable to wash your hands with soap and water, antibacterial gel is an appropriate substitute.
If your child requires medication while at school, the parent or legal guardian MUST bring the medication to the nurse's office in its original container AND complete a medication administration form. Please reference page 20 of your Humble ISD Parent/Student handbook for additional details. If your child becomes ill, please check his or her temperature prior to arriving at school.
For temperatures 100.0 degrees or above, per department policy, the student is required to remain at home. Before returning to school, your child must be free of fever without the aid of medication. Please reference page 19 of your handbook for additional information regarding elevated temperatures.
All students must be immunized in accordance with state law before entering Texas schools. Vaccines are available from doctors' offices, the Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services Department, 281-446-4222, or the Houston Department of Health and Human Services, 713-794-9320.
Information regarding immunizations requirements, in both English and Spanish, can be accessed here.
When turning in records, including electronic (My Chart) records, Records must be signed or stamped by the physician or his/her designee or public health personnel.
Affidavits regarding varicella are available. Please print the varicella proof form.
For children who need medical exemptions, a written statement by the physician should be submitted to the school annually. Parents/guardians choosing the exemption for reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, should visit www.ImmunizeTexas.com for instructions.
