    Flu Season

    The Flu Season is around the corner. Consider getting flu shots for the entire family. LISD fever policy requires a child who is ill with a fever MUST be fever free (less than 100 degrees), without the use of fever reducing medications, for 24 hours before returning to school.

     

    Remember to……

    Cover you Cough and Wash your Hands.

    Annual Health Screenings for 7th Graders

    The annual 7th Grade Hearing, Vision and Acanthosis Nigricans (AN)screening is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8th. If your child wears contacts or glasses, please remind them to wear them for the screening.

    We will collect child and adult used glasses to donate the Lions Club that day. Please send in your used glasses.

    Get a jump on required immunization for 7th Grade

    Did you receive any shots at your last physical? If you did, they probably are the ones required for 7th grade. All 7th graders must have two new shots: Tdap and Meningoccocal (MCV4).

    Check out what immunizations we have on file for your child through the Skyward Family Access. Log-on and click on the Health Info tab on the left side of the page. If you have received immunizations not listed on this page, please fax (214-626-1793), e-mail (degiulioj@lisd.net) or drop off a copy of them to me, Nurse DeGiulio.

    Information on required immunizations and waivers are listed on the FMS website on the Nurse’s Corner.
