Welcome to Lemm Clinic

We are so glad to have to back for the 2017-2018 school year.




The clinic uses only heat, cold cloths, ice, Vaseline, Calamine lotion, hand lotion, soap, band-aids and salt water for the care of our students.  


We do not give medications to students unless a parent has made previous arrangements.

No medication can be sent to school with the student, it must be brought to the clinic by a parent or guardian.

The clinic is always in need of donations.
We accept clothing (that is in good condition), new underwear and socks, band-aids, bottled water, hand sanitizer, laundry soap, dryer sheets, dish soap and many other items.



All forms that need to be filled out can be accessed via

The Klein ISD Health Services page

Medications
http://classroom.kleinisd.net/users/1682/images/rx-meds.gif
1. All medications must be brought to & picked up from the clinic by a parent.  Children are not permitted to transport medications.  
2. The school may accept a sufficient quantity of medicine for one month.  
3. Only prescription medication needed for the student to remain in school will be given by the school nurse.
4. Prescription medicine must be in its original container, kept in locked storage in nurse's office, and administered by the clinic. 
5. No vitamins, health food, or herbal preparations will be given by the school nurse.  
6. Over the counter medications will only be administered for a period of 2 weeks with written parent permission. A physician's note will be required for any OTC medication needed longer than two weeks. 
6. Any leftover medicine not picked up by the parent at the close of the school year will be destroyed.
7. Medication prescribed "three times a day" can be given before & after school and at bedtime.
Illness & Absences
Please notify attendance if your child is absent due to illness. If your child has a fever, 100 degrees or above, the student will be required to stay home & can return to school once they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol/Advil/Motrin. The student must be free from GI symptoms such as vomiting & diarrhea to be permitted to go to school. Your child can return to school when there has been no diarrhea for 24 hours.  Remember, handwashing is the single most important tool for preventing the spread of illness.
Update Contact Information of Parents/Guardians
It is very important for the school to reach you at all times especially in the event of an emergency. Anytime a phone number changes, please inform the front office, school nurse & teachers.
Immunizations
Texas State Law requires immunizations to be current for admission to school. Please send a copy of your immunizations to the clinic anytime your child receives them. State law requires a student to be excluded for late immunizations. The clinic will inform you of any outstanding immunizations and permit ample time to accomodate those requests. Please view the links page on this website for immunization requirments.
Our Partnership
Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child's development. Please feel free to visit the clinic to discuss any health concerns you may have. We look forward to helping your children have a safe, healthy, and positive school year.
Role of the School Nurse

5. KISD nurses are employed to give immediate attention to school-related injuries or illnesses. Nurses are not permitted to make medical diagnoses, therefore parents are always encouraged to contact their physicians.
