CFISD has set up with Healthy Schools, a division of CareDox, to administer no-cost flu shots to our students on Thursday, October 18th,
from 7:45 to 11:15 AM. Information and permission forms are being sent by e-mail and posted to our school website this week. A paper copy will be given to your child by his or her English teacher Wednesday, September 5th, or Thursday, September 6th. If you are interested in your child receiving a free flu shot, you may register him or her at www.cyfairisdflu.com or have your child return the paper application to his or her English teacher by September 14th.
Angela Baird - Nurse
Students requesting to go home for medical issues need to call from the clinic only. Students must be picked up from the clinic if going home for medical issues. Students leaving for medical reasons will not be allowed to drive themselves.
District Policy states that students are not allowed to carry or bring medication to school. All medication must be brought in the original unopened container to the clinic by a parent or adult. Parents must fill out a permission form to administer medication in the clinic.
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.
Due to important changes in the Texas Administrative Code Chapter 97 rule 97.7 regarding control of communicable diseases, Cypress Fairbanks ISD will immediately implement the following changes in our exclusion policy in our efforts to preserve student health.
