Immunization Information

For additional information on shots, medications, the role of the school nurse, etc., please visit the NISD Health Services web page.

Illness at School:

If a child becomes ill or is injured, he will be given first aid or other appropriate care in the clinic. If the student needs immediate medical attention or is too ill to return to class promptly, parents, guardians or another alternate adult listed on the medical card should pick their child up promptly. If unable to arrive promptly, and the student is without fever, he/she will return to class until the parent/guardian arrives.

The parent or guardians responsible for furnishing ALL emergency information on the student's medical card including alternative adults and current phone numbers. In event the designated persons are unavailable, it is the parent's responsibility to make arrangements for the student to be picked up, and to notify the school as to the person picking the student up.

In extreme emergencies E.M.S. will be called. Payment for E.M.S. is the parent's responsibility.

Absence Due to Illness:

The nurse has the responsibility if she suspects a contagious health condition to request that the child be picked up by the parent or guardian and examined by a physician for diagnosis and treatment.

Non - Participation in Physical Education:

A letter or school health form from your doctor is necessary if your child has any special health problem, such as allergies (severe), severe asthma, diabetic, epilepsy, cardiac, which would cause possible restrictions of physical education activities. A parent may request that his/her child be excused from physical education activities for a maximum of three days. Any period longer than that requires a statement from your doctor.
