CLINIC NEWS

This week's Texas Influenza Surveillance Report rates the intensity of influenza-like illness statewide as 'very high'. It's not too late to consider a flu shot for this season! Although 'flu' is not the only bug in town, most are susceptible to the basics—effective handwashing, covering coughs/sneezes and isolation of ill individuals. Working together on these three will help minimize spread at school.


Just a reminder: when your child is ill or injured at school, they want YOU.


  • Please be sure your contact information is up to date (changes can be emailed to the Front Office staff).
  • Enter the clinic phone number (281-298-4711) in your contacts so our call will be recognized.
  • Please make a back-up plan for pick-up for times when you are unavailable.
  • Ill students should be picked up within 30 minutes so we can continue to provide care for others.
  • Children should remain at home until they are fully recovered.

LUNCH VISITORS

LUNCH SIGN UP
