Nurse's Notes

This has been a wild year so far, and I know there have been a lot of changes. I want to thank everyone so much for being patient and understanding with all of our new policies and procedures with absences and dismissals from the clinic under the KatyISD COVID-19 guidelines. For those of you who are unfamiliar, if your child is absent or sent home from the clinic with an illness with two or more symptoms that are COVID-like, they will need to be seen by their doctor and have a doctor’s note to clear them to return to school. It will be up to the doctor to decide if they need to have a COVID test before they clear them to return.


Flu season is upon us, believe it or not! There are places all around town offering flu shots. Many insurance carriers provide flu shots for no charge under your policy. Check your policy to see if you and your family are covered.


Is your child returning for F2F instruction for 3rd term, and do they need to take medication at school? You can find the necessary forms on the TJH website under clinic. These forms can be dropped off along with the meds any time during the school day. Forms must be signed by your child’s physician if they are to be taken for a period of 15 days or more.


Questions or Concerns? Please don’t hesitate to contact the clinic any time!
