What do I do if I become ill during the school day?
I need to take medication during the school day. How is this handled?
The medication policy for Cy Fair ISD states that parent's must bring medication to the clinic and provide written permission with request of administration directions. This policy, although time consuming is an effort to provide for the maximum safety of our students. Other districts have had student deaths related to over the counter medication administration. As a result, medication administration is taken very seriously.
Teachers and staff are not allowed to give students medication except per district guidelines. The only exception to this rule are persons who hold after school events such as trainers, band and drill team instructors who may administer medications to a student while participating in their event.
