We applaud your efforts to get your children to school as many days as possible but there will be days when that is not a good idea for both the health of your child or the other students. 

This is your child's best chance to heal quickly and our best defense against contagious illnesses.

Per Texas Department of Health Services and LVISD school policy, students must stay home until they have had 24 hours without vomiting or fever for any kind of cause (fever is considered 100 degrees or more without needing medicine to bring the fever down.) 

LVISD policy states that students are not allowed to carry medications. Any medicine that they need must be kept in the school clinic. 

The exception to that rule is for emergency medications such as inhalers for students with Asthma, Epi-Pens for students with serious Allergies, some students with Seizure Disorders and  students with Diabetes whose parents have contacted the clinic. 

All medications must be in their original container along with written permission from the parent to take it.

Parents must bring all medications to the clinic. Students are not permitted to carry meds to school.
All controlled substance medications will be counted with the nurse.
All first doses of medications must be taken at home before starting at school.
All Medication Permission forms must be signed by a parent/guardian. In addition:
  • Prescription medications require written doctor's orders.
  • Over-the-counter (OTC) meds taken for more than 5 consecutive days also require doctor's orders.

Health screenings are done at specified intervals and for any student thought to be having problems. Parents will be notified if there are any concerns that require follow-up with a physician.

Vision & Hearing (EE, PK, K, 1, 3, 5, 7th)

Spinal (5th and 7th for Girls, 8th for Boys) Learn more here about scoliosis.

Height & Weight (3-12 for students in athletics and PE)
It sounds gross and can be embarrassing, but Bugs Happen. It's a very common problem, but they are not dangerous and they don't spread disease. They can't jump, they can't fly... they can only crawl. So head to head contact is the most typical way of spreading it. Sleep-overs, taking selfies, shared hats or hoodies, shared combs or brushes, play that is close and physical....
When students are found to have active cases of head lice, their parents will be notified so they can pick them up and take them home for treatment. They can then be readmitted the next day after treatment for the lice.

If you find your child has head lice, it is very helpful to let the school nurse know so a class letter can go out to other parents. Be assured, no names are used to protect privacy, but, if all heads in the classroom are checked by their parents, your chances of success go way up.

This is a great video that shows what lice and their eggs (called nits) look like. Click here

A second video shows excellent combing technique. Please understand that I am not recommending any particular lice shampoo, I just love how they do their hair combing and know that parents who use good combing get great results. Click here

BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE Ask for documentation so you can get proof to the school ASAP. Be sure it has the clinic stamp on it. 

You can email records/images to or text an image  to 512-571-3510

If your student does not receive immunizations because of a medical condition please have a physician send in a Medical Exemption, which are good for 1 year, unless it states otherwise.

You can also submit an Affidavit Exemption from Immunizations for Reasons of Conscience. These are good for 2 years. The link to receive one of those is attached below. 


It is wise to order 5 for future use. Please take a screenshot of the site's confirmation or order placement and text it to us at 512-571-3510 until your forms arrive. 

Exemption forms must be notarized and taken to your child's campus and placed in their file. We have notaries at the MS registrar's office and the district Administration office.

If you withdraw your student, please ask for your hard copy form when you come to withdraw your student. Your next school will require it in hand. 


Many of our students have allergies to foods, either from touch, ingestion, or even airborne ones from just being in the same room with the allergen. The most common are nuts, dairy, wheat, shrimp, and a variety of fruits and vegetables.

Our food service company does not serve anything with nuts in it for the protection of our students.

But, because families occasionally send in food with nuts for their own child, WE ARE NOT NUT FREE. We do not want anyone to let their guard down assuming that because our cafeterias do not serve it, there is no need to be vigilant. We are always vigilant. 

If your child has any food allergies or intolerances, please inform both the school nurse and your child's teachers. Click here for ALLERGY ACTION PLAN form in English.  For Spanish, click here for page 1 and click here for page 2 of the form in Spanish. Please fill them out fully and and bring to school.
