Vision/Hearing screening – All students in KG, 1st, 3rd, and 5th will be screened yearly as required by law. If the student fails the screening the student’s parents will be contacted by the school nurse. Classroom screening is scheduled over a period of 2 – 3 months, however, if you or your child’s teacher notice a possible hearing or vision issue, please call the nurse and she will screen your child immediately.
Spinal Screening – School spinal screening was developed to identify adolescents with small spinal curves and refer them for treatment before these curves become too severe. In compliance with Health and Safety Code, Chapter 37, all children shall undergo screening for abnormal spinal curvature in accordance with the following schedule:
Girls will be screened two times, once at age 10 (or fall semester of grade 5)and again at age 12 (or fall semester of grade 7).
Boys will be screened one time at age 13 or 14 (or fall semester of grade 8).
Any medication that a student may need during the school day, both prescription and over the counter, will be handled according to recommended Conroe ISD policy and procedure, TEA recommendations and FDA guidelines.
All medications must be stored and given in the school clinic.
For your child’s safety, medications cannot be transported to or from the school on the bus.
All medicines must be brought to the school and signed in by the parent/guardian.
All medication must be in its original labeled container.
Dosage for both prescription and non-prescription medications will be administered according to labeled instructions.
Over-the-counter medication dosage must not exceed the dose recommendation listed on the bottle.
(Exception: A physician or dentist may write a note for a different dosage if needed.)
The use of “sample” medication from the physician, dentist, or orthodontist must have signed written instructions from the doctor accompanied by the parent’s written permission.
The Surgeon General, the Food and Drug Administration and the Center of Disease Control have recommended that due to the increased risk of developing “Reyes Syndrome” (a serious and sometimes fatal disease), aspirin or products containing salicylates should not be given to children under 18 years. If your physician orders aspirin for your child a written directive from your physician will be required along with written parent permission.
All medication may be picked up at the end of the school year. Per CISD policy, leftover medication will be discarded.
