Vision and Hearing Screening

The Vision and Hearing screening team has already begun the state mandated screening process. The state requires all of 7th grade and ALL new students to the district have vision and hearing screened. 

Acanthosis Nigricans: 

The 77th Texas Legislature signed into law mandating screening for  Acanthosis Nigricans, a skin marker for Type 2 Diabetes. Referral letters  recommending a follow up with a physician will be sent home if a student fails any of the screenings.

Medication Policy: 

Manor ISD medication policy states all medications must be kept and given in the nurses’ office. Please understand that by following the medication procedure, you will be preventing medication errors due to possible confusion or miss-communication. Written orders from doctors office are needed for those students that need to carry their inhaler with them. Medications MUST be in the original container or labeled prescription bottle accompanied by a completed PERMISSION TO ADMINISTER MEDICATION form filled by the  doctor. Medication can be given for one day without this form if permission is received in the form of a hand written note stating the name of the medication, the dosage, and the time to be given. Medication received in any other form (Example: plastic baggies) can not be given! Your pharmacist will dispense a properly labeled school supply container upon your request. Medication given longer than 2 weeks must have the bottom portion of the medication form completed by the prescribing physician. For the safety of all students, medications will not be sent home with students. Parents must pick up their child’s medications for the nurse. Medications will be discarded at the end of the school year if not picked up.


SHAC:

The School Health Advisory Council is a committee made up of parents and community members with a vested interest in the health and safety of the students in Manor ISD. The committee meets four times a year and always welcomes new members who wants to be a part of the community. Please see the campus nurse for further information.
