We love our Bullard Panthers and know when students are better able to learn and thrive when they are healthy!
If you have questions about your student's health or any of the forms below, please contact your school nurse.
Student Health Policies
It is through a cooperative effort that we provide a healthy and safe school environment for all students and school employees. We all agree that students need to be in school to learn. However, in order for our children to perform well they need to be healthy.
Students who are assessed by the nurse, administrator or designee and are determined to have a possible communicable disease, show signs and symptoms of illness, or sustain an injury requiring medical attention, are to be dismissed from school. We will contact the parent/legal guardian first. If the initial contact is unable to be reached, persons authorized as an emergency contact will be contacted.
To minimize the spread of illness, DO NOT send your child to school if they have:
- Uncontrolled coughing
- Trouble breathing
- Eye: excessive drainage or watering; discharge; itching; redness
If a child has had fever, vomiting or diarrhea they should remain at home until they no longer have fever, vomiting or diarrhea for at least 24 hours without the use of fever reducing, antiemetic’s or antidiarrheal medications.
If your child has an infectious illness which requires medication that involves antibiotics (i.e. strep, pink eye, etc.), according to the State of Texas guidelines and district policy, the child must be on medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
Please remember that we CANNOT diagnose medical conditions. Therefore if you believe an injury or sickness is present, please contact your private health care provider.
Returning to School
Students may return to school if/when:
The child must be fever-free and free of vomiting or diarrhea for 24 consecutive hours without the use of medications, or with documentation from the child's physician stating they are released to return to school.
Before attending class, Texas law requires students in Texas schools to be immunized against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. All students attending public schools must submit to the district a valid and complete immunization record before attending class.
