Information from our Nurse

Dear Lanier Family,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and their parents.  I am looking forward to working with you and your students at Lanier Middle School.  To ensure your child’s health and safety I would like to share a few items with you.

Please take a look at my website, this site may answer many of your questions.

For Covid-19 information:

HISD reopening plan:

MEDICATIONS:  NO student is to take or carry prescription or over the counter medications to school without the nurse.  All medications (prescription AND over the counter) must have an HISD MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION form, must be completed and signed by both physician and the parent and turned into the nurse.  This form along with the prescribed medication in its original container must be brought to school by the parent/guardian.  Forms can be printed from

SCREENINGS:  As per Texas State Law the following screenings will be done at Lanier Middle School:

Seventh Graders: VISION, HEARING & ANTES SCREENING:  Will be conducted by the school nurse throughout the fall semester.  You will be notified only if your child does not pass the screening. 

Seventh grade girls & eighth grade boys: SCOLIOSIS SCREENING:  IMPOTANT!  If your student wants to opt out of Spinal Screening please contact me.
