Maria Pantoja - Clinic Assistant
Students requesting to go home for medical issues need to be assessed by the nurse. Parents will be contacted directly by the Nurse or nurse’s assistant if medically necessary to go home. Students being sent home by the Nurse, must be picked up and signed out in the clinic.
CDC, HCPHES, and Cy-Fair ISD guidelines for students with illness are:
Antibiotics and similar medications ordered 1-3 times daily can usually be given at home. Medications given 4 times a day can be given at lunch if original container is received in the clinic and a parent permission form is filled out.
Inhalers and Epi-pens are allowed to be carried by students only after the Physician self-administration medication form has been turned in to the nurse. A new Physician form must be turned in to the clinic at the beginning of each school year.
