    Tidehaven ISD does not stock medication for students, including over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl, Cough Suppressants, etc. For students to be medicated, parents must provide the medication. The medication can be stored in the nurse's office for future use.

    The following form must also be completed to give the school nurse or other personnel permission to administer the medication you provided.

    Medication Request Form- as needed medications

    If a medication must be administered routinely (daily) or is a prescription medication, the signature of the physician must also be included on the form.

    Daily Medication Request Form

    Medications must be current and in their original container with the child's name. Please do not send expired medication or medication in a bag or different bottle.

    Students should never have medication on them at school. If you are bringing medication for your student, please send it directly to the nurse's office. Medication should NOT be sent on the bus with your child.

    The exception for this includes students who carry emergency medications on them such as insulin, an inhaler, Epi-Pens, etc. If your child will be carrying one of these medications on them, please complete the Self-Tote form below.

    Self-Tote Medication Request Form

Screenings- Vision, Hearing, Spinal

  • VISION & HEARING SCREENING: Students in grades PK, KG, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade will be screened for vision and hearing deficits.

    ANTES SCREENING: Students in grades 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade will be screened for Acanthosis Nigricans which can help identify students who run the risk of developing diabetes in the future.

    SPINAL SCREENING: Girls will be screened in 5th and 7th grade. Boys will be screened in 8th grade.

    If the screening results are "failing," as indicated by the guidelines set by the Texas state department of health services, the school nurse will send home a letter along with a copy of the results and a referral form to return back to the school. Please follow up with the appropriate care provider promptly if you receive one of these letters.

    If you would like to opt your child out of spinal screenings due to religious reasons, please complete the following affidavit and turn it into the school nurse.
