  • Can my child's medicine be given at school?

    Posted by:

    Answer: Students are not allowed to carry medications or to self-administer their medications on the campus except under certain circumstances (Asthma inhalers, EpiPens); consult with the school nurse for more information. If your child is required to take prescribed medication during school hours, you and the medical practitioner must sign a completed permission form that is available at the school nurse's office. Consult with the school nurse about the “Practitioner's Written Order/Parent Consent” form that requires a practitioner's signature if there is not a signed written practitioner's order for the medication. Medications from Mexico cannot be administered. Only medication, in its original container and properly labeled and prescribed by a practitioner licensed to practice in the state of Texas, will be administered. The school nurse shall return unused medication only to the parent/legal guardian.

  • My child missed the bus. What do I do now?

    Posted by:

    Answer: If your child missed the bus, you should immediately contact the main transportation office at 937.0600 to inform them. Depending on the timing and location of your child's bus, your child will be picked up either right away or after their bus has run its entire route. To make sure that this does not happen to you though, we recommend being at your respective bus stop at least 5 minutes prior to your pick up time.

  • Can I give other family members permission to take my child out of school?

    Posted by:

    Answer: During your child's registration process, an emergency contact form is presented for you to fill out. There is a place on this form to list alternate people who are able to pick up your child from school. Anyone of these people can pick up your child as long as they present a valid picture ID of themselves. To allow someone who is not on this list to pick your child up, you MUST make prior arrangements with the schools front office before the pick up time.
