Below is information for parents/guardians of students that attend Little Cypress Elementary
If your child will be taking any prescription medications at school please have the form filled out and signed by your child’s doctor. You can print necessary forms located on the left menu of this page. Please also complete and sign the bottom portion of the form before turning in to the Nurse’s Office. All prescription medications must have a current label from a pharmacy on the medication (no samples will be given). The label must also be in your child’s name and have dispensing directions that match what the doctor fills out on the form. We will not be able to alter any medication instructions. If your child’s dispensing directions change during the year, a new form will need to be completed.
If your child has food allergies please have the form filled out and signed by your child’s doctor. You can print necessary forms located on the left menu of this page as well as a severe food allergy packet if your child requires an Epi Pen for their food allergies. We are unable to alter your child’s diet without their doctors consent.
If your child has asthma, a cardiac condition or seizure disorder please have the form and care plan filled out by your child’s doctor. You can print necessary forms located on the left menu of this page.
Illnesses with temperature of over 100.0 degrees will be sent home. Students need to be fever free without fever reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
A student with live pediculosis (head lice) according to policy will be sent home from school. The student may return to school after successful treatment (removal of all live lice). Before returning to class, the student must report to the Nurse’s Office for clearance.
Please keep weather appropriate change of clothes (including underwear and socks) in your child’s backpack at all times for accidents, spills etc. This is especially important for our younger students.
*All necessary forms to fill out can be located on the menu on the left of this page.
According to state policy, LCMCISD forms have been developed to be used if a family wants to OPT Out of Health Services either the Nonprescription Medications or the Epinephrine Auto-Injectors (EpiPens). If the decision to OPT Out of services is made the parent/guardian would need to go to the campus front office and request the form. Please contact Campus Principal Amber Hawk or Nurse Misty Coleman if you have questions or concerns.
