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 children at Lanier Middle School during the 2019-2020 school year.  To ensure your child’s health and safety I would like to share a few items with you.

MEDICATIONS:  NO student is to take or carry prescription or over the counter medications to school without the nurse.  All medications must have a 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 printedfrom https://www.houstonisd.org/Page/128845

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

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. 

SCOLIOSIS SCREENING:  IMPOTANT!  If your student wants to opt out of Spinal Screening please contact me.

FLU SHOTS:  Information will be sent home with your children about the upcoming Healthy Schools Flu Clinic to be held at Lanier - Date to be determined.  Flu shots are free for all students.
