Winter Illness

We would like to remind all parents of the importance of keeping sick children home. When a child comes to school ill, he/she can spread illness by coughing, touching his/her nose/mouth and then touching objects that other students come in contact with.

Remember that fever is not the only sign of true illness and that fever is usually a late sign of an illness, or an illness that is progressing.

If your child is out sick remember to always send in a note from the Dr or a parent note.

MISD Health policies are in place to help insure a healthy school where students can learn and grow.

Please take a moment to review the exclusions by clicking the following link MISD Exclusions.

Student Possession of Medication

McKinney ISD has a no tolerance policy for students in possession of medication of any kind, including herbal supplements, vitamins, and all over the counter medications including cough drops/lozenges.

All medications must be delivered and picked up by a parent or guardian.

Students are not allowed to drop off or take home their medication(s) from the school clinic.

All medications are to be stored in the nurse's office with the exception of prescribed medications for the treatment of asthma, anaphylaxis and diabetes.

Please see the campus nurse if your child has one of these conditions.
