Here are some key FBISD clinic policies you will find helpful throughout the school year:


NEW COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

 

Students

Parents shall screen their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms before allowing them to report to campus each day.  The self-screening includes taking their child’s temperature and checking for symptoms that could be COVID-19. Parents shall keep their child(ren) home if symptomatic.

 

For an unvaccinated student who is symptomatic, to return to school one of the following must be met and submitted to the individual’s campus nurse:

  1. Obtain a negative PCR Test (rapid tests are not accepted by FBISD), and 24 hours have passed since start of symptoms;

OR,

  1. Obtain a note from a physician indicating an alternative diagnosis

(Doctor’s notes just stating “this student has been seen by me”, will not be accepted),

and 24 hours have passed since start of symptoms;

OR,

  1. At least 24 hours have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; Symptoms have improved; and at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared

Families will only self-report via the Skyward Family Access wellness screener if their child(ren) has tested positive for COVID-19 or believe the child(ren) has been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19. The FBISD Contact Tracing Team and School Nurse will provide isolation/quarantine guidance along with the final clearance to return to school based on the unique situation of each student.

 

If vaccinated students are symptomatic, to return to school the following criteria must be met and submitted to the campus nurse:

  1. Obtain a negative PCR Test, and 24 hours have passed since start of symptoms;

OR,

  1. Obtain a note from a physician indicating an alternative diagnosis, and 24 hours have passed since start of symptoms;

OR,

  1. At least 24 hours have passed since recovery defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications; Symptoms have improved; and at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared

Visitors

By entering a District facility, all visitors will confirm they do not have COVID-19 symptoms and have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last ten days.

 

Unvaccinated individuals will also confirm they do not believe they have been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive with COVID-19 or traveled internationally.

 

If a visitor does not meet these criteria, they must not enter a District facility until they can confirm that they meet the criteria for entry.

 

*SPECIAL NOTE: These policies are subject to change throughout the school year. Please read emails, flyers, and communication from WSE or FBISD carefully so you don’t miss out on important updates.

 


 

All prescription and over the counter medication must be brought to school and picked up by a parent or adult.  We ask this of our parents so that we can protect all students.  Medications brought to school by children can be lost on the way, drop out of backpacks, or shared with other students. I know life is busy and work hours vary.  Please call me if this is difficult, so that we can work out a solution together.  

 

In order for us to dispense medication, a FBISD medication form (including student’s name and DOB, name of medicine, dose, and time to be given) must be filled out and signed by a parent/guardian. All over the counter medications brought into school must be in the original box/container and unopened. A doctor’s prescription is required for all asthma medications, Epi-pens, or any medicine that needs to be given for more than 15 days. Prescription medications need to be in the original container with the pharmacy label attached. All medications must have a valid expiration date.

I know perfect attendance is important to our students.  It is a great goal to have. However, there may be times when your child is too sick to come to school.  

 

If your child is running a fever (100.0 or greater in the past 24 hours), vomiting, or having diarrhea the morning of school, please keep your child home.  I know it is tempting to give them medicine for these conditions and send them on to school, but that simply masks the illness.  Sending them to school when they are ill tends to prolong their recovery and spread their illness to others in the classroom. We ask that you keep your child home until they are fever free for 24 hours without taking fever reducing medications like Tylenol or Motrin.

 

*You will be contacted to pick your child up from school for the following reasons:

- temperature of 100.0 or greater within the past 24 hours.

- vomiting or diarrhea

- undetermined rash

- feeling too ill to remain in school


Please remember if your child is absent, you have 5 school days, after your child has returned to school, to submit any excuse letters or doctor’s notes to your child’s teacher or email to attendanceWSE@fortbendisd.com
