Our Health room is staffed part time by a Registered Nurse and a School Health Assistant (SHA). Dell Children’s Hospital has partnered with AISD to provide services to ill and injured students in order to optimize learning. Health room staff hours vary day to day.
If a student will be needing medication at school permission is required in writing from parents on our Medication Authorization Form. Inhalers require a different form and a physician’s signature on the Asthma Action Plan. The more information you can share with our health room team on your student’s specific needs the better. If your student has a food allergy please let us know so we can communicate with the cafeteria staff, including providing a picture of your student. If your student requires an Epi-pen please fill out the appropriate paperwork and leave in the health room.
Over the counter medication can be kept in the health room for two weeks with written permission from parents (fill out the medication authorization form). If the student will need it longer a doctor’s note is required. In addition, health room staff can only give medications as written on the box, so please make sure the medication is for your child’s age group.
