Nurse/Medical Information
HEALTH SERVICES 
RCS employs a full-time registered nurse to serve our school family. Her office is located in Building A, and is open from 8:45 AM to 3:30 PM each school day. The school nurse is responsible only for the emergency care of injuries and sudden illnesses that occur while the student is at school. She can provide ice packs, band-aids, and comfort to students who have been injured and will notify parents via email for all visits to the office. 

ALLERGIES 
Children with serious allergies (i.e., food, dyes, insect stings) or chronic medical conditions (i.e., asthma, diabetes, seizures), are expected to notify the school nurse upon acceptance or upon becoming aware of the medical condition. The nurse will work with Administration to determine if a medical action plan will need to be put into place. RCS will attempt to assist with food allergies. However, students must be able to be mainstreamed in a normal classroom. 

RCS cannot be held responsible for the contents of student lunches. Medication Policy Students should not carry medications of any type without proper documentation. Please see the school nurse for additional information if needed. 

SCHOOL POLICY REGARDING THE ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION IS AS FOLLOWS: 
• RCS will not provide over-the-counter (OTC) medications for student use. 
• Families desiring to have OTC medicines available for their child(ren) are to provide these medicines in a “Space Maker” plastic box.
These medications are to be taken by the parent directly to the nurse for check in. 
• Dispensing of any/all medications may only be extended by the nurse when the required authorizations are on file with the school nurse. 
• RCS employees will not administer herbal medications, home remedies, or dietary supplements unless accompanied by a doctor’s note. 

HEALTH SCREENING 
As per Texas law, RCS will conduct yearly vision, hearing and spinal screenings for selected grade levels. Parents will be notified prior to testing dates.
