If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse.

You can reach her by email megan.hammonds@crowellisd.net, or by calling your child's school 940-684-1878 ext. 320.  If she is not in her office please leave a message and she will return your call asap.

Also, please inquire about ImmTrac at your next healthcare visit.  ImmTrac is a very useful resource and will keep a record of your child's immunizations.  Adults may now use the service as well.  This is very handy especially for use in employment and college entrance and requirements.  Here is a link to forms that will assist you in becoming a member of ImmTrac, both child and adult: http://www.dshs.texas.gov/immunize/immtrac/forms.shtm

Spinal screens are performed in the 5th and 8th grade.  They are a state-mandated screening.

 

 

 Asthma Action Plans are required for all students with the diagnosis of asthma.  Children will only be allowed to self-carry their medication with a Doctor note with specific instructions and a properly labeled device from a pharmacy. 

If your child has a diagnosis of Epilepsy, please print and fill out the Epilepsy action plan.  One will also be sent home once the nurse is notified that your child has this diagnosis on the health intake plan.

The same is true if your child has a food allergy or is at risk for anaphylaxis.

The school nurse will send an asthma action plan home once she is alerted that you have listed that as a diagnosis on the health intake form.  You may also download the form on this site.  The form must be filled out by your physician and returned to the school.  You may fax the form, send it with your child, or bring it to the school as soon as possible.  Please make every effort to complete this in as timely a manner as possible.  It is very important for your child to have the proper action plan(s) on file.

 

Flu Information:

Flu shots are available through your healthcare provider, area clinics, pharmacies, and local health departments. It is not too late to get a flu shot. Flu shots take 2 weeks to become effective and are from a dead virus and do not cause the flu. Additional information on seasonal flu is available on the website of the Center for Disease Control.  

Students, staff and parents with flu-like symptoms should stay home until at least 24 hours after they no longer have a fever (without the use of fever-reducing medicine). If your child is home from school with the flu or flu-like symptoms, please notify the office that your child is home with flu or flu-like illness. This will assist the District and the Health Department in monitoring the spread of the flu.
