The Central High Clinic designed to treat minor injuries and to act as a temporary waiting room for students who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, only persons designated on the Health Information /Emergency Release Card will be contacted to pick up the student. All telephone numbers must be recorded on the Health Information/Emergency Release Card and updated immediately if changes occur during the school year.

Illness During the School Day
If a student becomes ill during the school day, the student should report to the school health clinic where the nurse will assess the student and administer first aid. In the event the school nurse is not present, the student should report immediately to the reception area of G - 105 (teachers workroom).

Students will be sent home and should stay home from school due to illness if any of the following are present:

  • fever of 100 degrees or higher in the past 24 hours
  • vomiting and/or diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • itchy, red eyes with discharge
  • unknown rash
  • untreated scabies, impetigo
  • ringworm of the scalp (until treatment has been started)
  • headlice or nits

All medication should be given outside of school if possible. Most medications, even those scheduled for three times per day, can usually be given outside of school hours. Also, Texas state law does not permit public schools to provide Tylenol, Advil, cough preparations or other over-the-counter medications to students unless these are supplied from home (and have written parent consent).

These will need to be brought in to the school clinic by the parent or guardian who will sign a "Medication Card."
Medications must be:

  • In the original, properly labeled container (no baggies or envelopes, please!).
  • Up to date (check expiration date before bringing it to school), and
  • Age appropriate in dosage.

Self Medication: Only high school students will be permitted carry an over the counter remedy (such as a one day dose of Tylenol, Aleve or Midol) and only when accompanied by written parent permission (a special form is available online or in the school clinic). Medication must be in original container and up to date. Aspirin may not be taken by students under 18 without a doctor's note.

"Controlled Medications": Ritalin, Dexedrine, Concerta and Adderral and all other "controlled" (Class II) medications must be brought to the clinic by a parent, guardian or responsible adult. Please do not send these medications to school with your child because of modern safety concerns. All controlled medications are counted by the school nurse and locked in a secure cabinet. All prescription medications must be in the original, properly labeled containers. The pharmacy can supply two (2) labeled bottles for this purpose. Medication sent in baggies or unlabeled containers will not be given.

Inhalers: For students who need to carry their inhalers at school, please complete the Asthma Action Plan form, which must be signed by the student's physician. We request that a second inhaler be kept in the clinic in the event that the student forgets the inhaler at home. All inhalers must have a label on the inhaler or be sent with the box prescription label.

Immunization Requirements
In accordance with state law, students must have the following before they may enroll and attend school:

  • 3 doses of DPT with one dose on or after the 4th birthday
  • 3 doses Polio with one dose on or after the 4th birthday
  • 2 doses MMR received on or after the 1st birthday
  • 3 doses Hepatitis B for students born on or after September 1, 1988
  • 1 dose Varicella or date if child had chickenpox

For students with religious or medical exemptions, special forms are located in the clinic.
