Exley Elementary Clinic
Suzi Jackson, R.N. Registered Nurse Nurse’s Aide: Sarah Perut
When to Keep Your Child Home from School
Children must be free of fever (less than 100 degrees) for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications (such as Tylenol or Advil/Motrin) before returning to school.
Children must be free of vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school and need to be eating and drinking without any problems.
Parents should notify the school anytime a student is absent. Absences can be reported online by going to the Exley website and clicking on the Parent Tab.
A parent's note must accompany child's return to school if the absence was not reported online. A doctor's note is required for absences of 5 days or more.
Please call the school nurse if your child has been diagnosed with a contagious condition such as pink eye, strep throat, chicken pox, impetigo, ringworm, flu or has vomiting and/or diarrhea.
For more information please refer to Katy ISD Health Services in the Quick Links box to the right.
Children are not permitted to carry medication, including cough drops.
ALL MEDICATION must be administered from the clinic. Over the counter medication for less than 15 days must be accompanied by a note from the parent authorizing administration of the medication, reason for the medication, the dose, time and amount. Parents are asked to deliver the medication to the clinic (if at all possible) and bring only the necessary amount for school.
ALL MEDICATION must be in the original container. Please call the nurse if your child is bringing medication, so I may ensure its safe arrival to the clinic. All prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy container with the child’s name, medication date and dosing instructions. Parents may request a 2nd bottle from the pharmacy so that the nurse can have the appropriately labeled bottle in the clinic. Medications directed to be administered 3 times per day, or every 8 hours, are to be given at home.
Medication forms can be obtained from the Katy ISD Health Services webpage, which can be accessed from the Quick Links box to the right. Click on the specific clinic form needed.
Keep Us Posted!
Please ensure that the campus nurse is updated with any changes in your child’s medical information. It is also important to provide the school with correct and updated phone numbers. If you have changes, please contact the Attendance Clerk.
The Clinic is always in need of extra clothes. If you have any gently used clothing that your child has out grown, we’d be happy to take them off your hand! Just bring them to the clinic or send to school with your child. For sanitary purposes we are asking that the underwear be new.
Every student should have a change of clothes (including underwear + socks) rolled up or placed in a baggie in the bottom of their backpack. This prevents the parent from being called to the school for a change of clothes. Clean clothing may be necessary for a food/drink mishap in the cafeteria, as well as for bathroom accidents.
Health & Nutrition
Please encourage your child to start each day with a healthy breakfast. Look at the lunch menu with your child and encourage healthy choices.
Exley is an allergy aware campus. Please remind your child that food/ snacks are not to be shared at school. Please notify the nurse prior to school if your child has food allergies.
Parents, please ensure that your child has a good night’s sleep before coming to school.
