    It is the aim of the nurse at Grapevine Middle School to develop in each child a positive approach to healthful living in both attitude and practice. Our nurse is here to help provide a safe and healthy environment for children to learn at their optimal capacity and to provide professional care for those who become ill or injured at school.

    Health Clinic
    Grapevine Middle School’s clinic is designed to treat minor injuries and to act as a temporary “waiting room” for children who have become ill during the school day. Should a student become ill, 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 by the parent in Skyward if changes occur during the school year.
    RN does not have stock medication to give to students. 

    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
    • unknown rash
    • ringworm of the scalp (until treatment has been started)
    • head lice or nits (until treatment has been started: reapply at day 10)
    • jaundice

    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 main office. 

    Medication Procedures
    All medication should be given outside of school if possible. If necessary, medication can be given at school with a permission form signed by both parent and a doctor.  No morning medication will be administered. Three times per day medication can be given before school, after school, and at bedtime.  Student may self-carry their own prescription labeled Inhaler/EpiPen with a doctor/parent signed permission form returned to the RN clinic: see RN for rules.  ADHD medication must be dropped off by a parent only.  

    All student medication must be kept in the clinic

    • Medications must be in the original, properly labeled containers. The pharmacy can supply 2 labeled bottles for this purpose and for field trips.  
    • Medication sent in baggies or unlabeled containers will not be given.
    • Written permission of the parent or guardian is required for the administration of all medication.
    • Medication permission forms may be obtained from the nurse’s office or on this site. A new permission form is required each school year.
    • Ritalin and other controlled medications will require a physician’s signature as well as the parental/guardian’s signature.  Drugs must be dropped off and logged in by parent with the RN. Students may not bring their own ADHD supply to school. 
    • Inhaler/EPI Pen must have a doctor/parent signed permission form returned to the RN clinic with a label on the outside of the canister and not expired.
    • Non-prescription medication will only be kept for a maximum of 10 doses with a parent signed permission form.
    • Students may not carry their own pain relievers. 
    • Students may carry their own cough drops.
