Medical Information

6th and 7th Grade Parents: KISD follows the recommendations from The Texas Department of State Health Services which may change from time to time. Check with your physician to make sure your child's immunizations are up to date. Your child must have up to date immunization records on file with the clinic prior to the first day of school. Currently all 7th graders must have the following immunizations:
  • Meningococcal Vaccine
  • Varicella Vaccine: Two doses are now required prior to the 7th grade. If your child had the Chicken pox disease the Varicella immunization is not necessary. You will need to fill out a form stating that your child had the disease.
  • Tdap Booster: This immunization is due if it has been more than 5 years since your last immunization that contained tetanus.

Please read the following document relating to incoming 7th Grade students and required student immunizations.

8th Grade Parents: If your child is transferring from a school outside of Texas or is being retained in the 8th grade, the above immunizations are also required before beginning school. Students transferring from another Texas school should have already received the State required immunizations. Please check with your physician or school clinic.

Prescription Medications 
All prescription medications must be delivered directly to the clinic by the parent or guardian. A KISD Medication Form will be required. This form can also be picked up from the school clinic. This includes all oral medications, inhalers, ointments, etc. This procedure is implemented for the safety of your children. Students who bring prescription medications to school, even with instructions from parents to deliver them to the clinic, will be referred to their Assistant Principal and may be subject to disciplinary measures. 

All prescription medication must be in its original container, properly labeled from the pharmacy. Check expiration dates. No expired medication will be accepted. The clinic will accept a one month supply of medication which will be inventoried with the parent. Siblings may not share prescription medications. All prescription medications not picked up by the parent/guardian by the last day of school will be sent for disposal. 

Over The Counter Medications 
Students may bring non-prescription/over the counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, etc. to the clinic. Please provide a dated, signed, Parent note with a current phone number. Over the counter medications will be kept in the clinic for two weeks only unless a doctor's note is provided. The medication will be administered by clinic personnel. Check expiration dates. All medication must be in the original bottle. Please bring a small bottle due to limited storage space. 

Students may carry a small bottle of over the counter medication on their person with a signed, dated, parent note. The medication must be in the original bottle. Check the expiration date. The medication may not be shared with other students. It is strongly recommended that the student go to the clinic to take the medication since the consumption of pills in any form during the school day or on the school campus increases the likelihood of a student being mistakenly charged with a violation of the district's policy on drug abuse.

Administering Medication 
The school does not provide any medications for students. No herbal preparations will be administered. Due to the danger of Reye's Syndrome, No Aspirin will be administered by the clinic staff unless specifically ordered by your child's physician for a specific diagnosis. 

Communicable Diseases

  • Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) - May return to school after the prescription medication has been initiated. Doctor's note is required.
  • Fever - Student must go home if they have fever of 100.0 or higher. The student may return to school when they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen.

All student's new to the Klein ISD and all 7th grade students will be screened for the following:

  • Vision and Hearing. The screening we do is for far vision only. If your student is having difficulty with reading or near vision, you will need to take them to an eye care specialist for a proper examination. Please encourage your student to wear their glasses or hearing aids every day.
  • Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) is a skin marker found on the back of the neck which can be a precursor to Type II Diabetes
  • Height and Weight
  • Spinal Screening/Scoliosis for 8th grade males and 7th grade females
