SCHOOL NURSE

Health care information forms and packets are listed on this page to the right. Please complete any applicable information for your student and return to the health room. Please note that if your student is going to carry an Epipen or Inhaler at school, they MUST have a consent form signed by the parent AND physician/provider to do so.

Over The Counter

Also note that high school students may carry "over the counter" medications with them as long as the medication is in the original container and contains the instructions for administration. The student is to take the medication as directed and is not to share medication with peers.

Prescription Medication During School Hours

If your student needs to take prescription medication during school hours, please complete the authorization form and bring the medication and consent form to the health room for storage (exceptions are Epipen and inhalers, if authorized to self carry by parent and physician/provider).

Epipens/Inhalers

Please note that if your student is going to carry an Epipen or Inhaler at school, they MUST have a consent form signed by the parent AND physician/provider to do so.

If your student will be self carrying an Epipen or inhaler, you may also leave a back up supply in the health room if you would like to. Note that if your student is carrying Benadryl, a consent is not needed as it is considered an "over the counter" medication.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the School Health Nurse at 512-414-5272 ext 57218 or via email lynn.eno@austinisd.org
