A Word from the Nurse
The School nurse administers first aid only. She does not diagnose illnesses, but takes note of symptoms and notifies the parents of her observations. We ask that children be kept at home when ill. They should have a normal temperature for 24 hours after any illness before returning to school. This is important for the health of the child and for the health of all children at the school. Please keep your emergency phone number updated for our information.

Medication Administration at School
For the protection of all students, NISD has very strict rules regarding medication to be given at school.
Physician orders are needed for any medication dispensed at school. Medication administration forms are available in the school clinic or on the NISD website.
Students are not allowed to carry with them any cold medications, cough drops, throat lozenges, vitamins or herbal remedies.
All medication should be delivered to the clinic or to the office by an adult. Parents should report to the clinic any time they come to give their child medication at school.
Parents are also responsible for picking up medications. For the safety of your child and other children, medications will not be sent home with the child.
