Better To Be Safe Than Sorry


Hi Parents-

10 days of school left and I’m already gearing up for August!!
If your child has a medical alert that requires emergency medication:
1. asthma
2. diabetes
3. environmental allergy that causes hives/anaphylaxis
4. food allergy that causes anaphylaxis
5. seizures

Please go to my website and download the necessary paperwork. New paperwork is required every year. You will notice as your child is grows, the medication dosages will change too.
1. PARENTS must bring the necessary forms signed by the doctor and medication
MUST be in its original container. (SBISD policy) Start this process in the summer.
2. Bring forms/medicine to the clinic in August.
3. Medicine is kept in the clinic and travels with the child while they are on field trips.
4. Be prepared to keep your child’s emergency medicine at school.
Completing these steps will provide a safety net for your child while they are at school.

It’s better to be safe than sorry.
