Montgomery ISD Medication Policy
Prescription drugs and Non-prescription drugs:
The school must receive an authorization to administer medication form before a medication can be given. The form is available in the clinic or on our website. This form must be signed by the parent/guardian. Any medication being taken for >14 consecutive days, must also have the physician’s signature. In addition, the following must occur:
Students with the following conditions shall be excluded from school:
Students will be re-admitted after being vomiting, diarrhea or fever-free for 24 hours without the help of medications. Students with some conditions may return to school after being treated for 24 hours with an antibiotic. Call the school nurse for specific readmission guidelines.
MISD has a NO Live Lice Policy concerning head lice. A child that is found to have live head lice will be sent home. Please do Not send a child to school that you know has live lice. The child is not to return to school until they have been properly treated and all live lice are gone from the hair. After treatment is done at home, the child must return to the school nurse for inspection BEFORE returning to the class room. If live lice are found, the student will be sent back home. If nits (eggs) are found the child will be monitored by the school nurse. Please retreat your child one week after the first treatment as any missed eggs may hatch and causing the problem to start over again.
What are Head Lice?
Lice are parasites, little insects that live only on human scalp and hair. Away from the scalp, lice can survive only 1 – 2 days. Head lice are harmless, however may cause extreme itching. The female louse attaches approximately 60 – 150 eggs (nits) to the hair shaft near the scalp with a cement-like substance. The average life span of each louse if untreated is 30 days.
How are they spread?
Head lice are spread by direct contact with an infested person or indirectly by sharing clothing, bedding, combs, brushes, upholstered furniture in home and car etc. Lice cannot jump or fly; they are only capable of crawling. Lice and nits are responsible for transmission from one person to another.
Where are they found?
Nits (eggs) are most commonly detected at the crown of the head, behind the ears and at the nap of the neck. Nits firmly attach to the hair shaft, close to the scalp and are very difficult to remove due to the cement like substance they produce. Dandruff, hair sprays etc., are commonly seen during examination (careful attention needs to be made to avoid misdiagnosis due to the similarities in appearance). Nits are difficult to remove from the hair shaft. Dandruff is easily flaked away from the hair shaft. A bright light or sunlight helps to visualize the nits.
Action Steps for Parents to Protect Your Child and Family from the Flu and other Contagious Illness this School Year
As you know, cold and flu season is upon us again. We have had children absent from school with diagnosed cases of the flu as well as other contagious illness, (Strep throat and the good ole common cold among them). Please read the following information and share with your children.
Symptoms of FLU Symptoms of the Common Cold
THE DISTRICT POLICY STATES THAT YOUR CHILD MUST BE FEVER FREE FOR 24 HOURS (AND NOT ON FEVER REDUCERS) FOR 24 HOUR PERIOD AFTER RUNNING A TEMPERATURE OF 100.0 OR GREATER IN ORDER TO RETURN TO SCHOOL. If your child is sick, it is important for them to stay home from school, rest, and drink plenty of fluids. If your child is truly sick, he/she cannot do his/her best at school and risks exposing others to the same illness.
SIMPLE STEPS FOR KEEPING YOU AND YOUR CHILD HEALTHY
Antiviral medication is generally available for the flu, but must be taken within the first 24-48 hours to be effective. At this time of year, with the flu season so high, it may be difficult to find.
