• What is considered fever?If your child has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, he/she is required to stay home until he/she is able to maintain a temperature of less than 100 degrees for 24 hours without the use of medication to do so.
    What if my child will need medication during the school day?
    Any child needing medication at school must have the proper form on file with the nurse. Medication that is to be given 10 days or less will require a daily note from the parent/guardian. Medication that will be given longer than 10 days will need a physician's form to be filled out (see link below) and signed by the parent. All medication must be in its original, labeled container.
    Can my child carry their asthma inhaler?
    In elementary school your child's inhaler will be kept in the nurse's office. They may not keep it in their backpack.
    Can my child carry a pill to take at lunch or other time during the day?All medications to be taken at school must be kept in the clinic.  A note from the parent must accompany all medicines, even over the counter medication.
    How will I know if my child needs an immunization?Letters are sent out prior to immunizations being due. State Law prohibits a child who is not up to date on their immunizations to be in attendance. Please send a copy of the shot record to the nurse before the due date.
    My child needs occasional medications for headaches or other conditions. Can I leave medication for the year to be given as needed?
    Yes.  Medications may be left in the clinic for the duration of the year with a note from the physician signed by the parent.
    Can I just give the school permission over the phone to give my child a Tylenol or Motrin?Midway ISD does not purchase any medication for student use. Your child will only be given medications that are sent from home with proper documentation on file.
