HEATHER GLEN CLINIC INFORMATION
Health information: Please let your school nurse know if your student
has any significant health history such as febrile seizures, allergies,
ADD/ADHD or asthma, or takes daily medications (even at home). The
information is treated as confidential and is shared only on a need to
know basis. In case of emergency, we need as much information about
your child as possible.
Illnesses: Please contact the school office and school nurse if your child
is ill. Keep sick children at home to avoid spreading illness.
Phone numbers: In case your child becomes ill or injured at school, it is
imperative that we have up to date, working phone numbers to reach
you and your emergency contacts.
Immunizations: By law, all students must be fully vaccinated to attend
school. For immunization requirements, please visit the Garland ISD
Health Services website
s.asp Students who do not have an up to date immunization record on
file will not be allowed to start classes and their places will not be held.
Medications: If your student is going to need any type of medications at
school, please bring those medications to the school nurse. Please do
not send medications to school with your child. Children are NOT
allowed to carry or self administer medications (even cough drops) in
school. This is to keep all of our students safe and healthy. If your child
is going to need medications during the school day, please visit or call
the school nurse @ 972-270-2881 ext 42399. Medication administration
is subject to strict guidelines which can be found at:
Food Allergies: All parents of children with food allergies are asked to
provide a doctor’s note to the nurse. The Food Service department will
be notified, and an alert will be placed on the student’s cafeteria
account to avoid accidental exposure. If your child has emergency
medications, you will need to bring them to the school nurse to keep in
the clinic. Many children have peanut and tree nut allergies. Please do
not send any snacks for your child’s class that contain any kind of nuts.
