Dear Lanier Family,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students and their parents. I am looking forward to working with you and your children at Lanier Middle School during the 2018-2019 school year. To ensure your child’s health and safety I would like to share a few items with you.
MEDICATIONS: NO student is to take or carry prescription or over the counter medications to school. All medications must have a MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION form, must be completed and signed by both physician and the parent. This form along with the prescribed medication in its original container must be brought to school by the parent/guardian. Forms can be printed from https://www.houstonisd.org/Page/128845.
SCREENINGS: As per Texas State Law the following screenings will be done at Lanier Middle School:
VISION, HEARING & ANTES SCREENING: Will be conducted by the school nurse throughout the fall semester. You will be notified only if your child does not pass the screening.
SCOLIOSIS SCREENING: IMPOTANT! The Texas Department of State Health Services recently revised spinal screening rules to screen students by grade beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.
I am now required to screen 7thgrade girls and 8thgrade boys, this may require students being screened two years in a row.
FLU SHOTS: Information was sent home with your children about the upcoming Healthy Schools Flu Clinic to be held at Lanier on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 from 12:15 pm to 3:50 pm. Flu shots are freefor all students. Return the consent form by October 5thto reserve your student’s space. Online registration: http://www.register.HISDflu.com
For any questions or concerns please contact me @ Tina.Hechler@Houstonisd.org.

Lanier School Nurse
Huntington, College Excellence, and Kirby Collection, who have all been Lanier sponsors, are hosting an event specifically for Lanier families to provide information about the application and admission process to private high schools. It is not a pitch to leave HISD, but an information session. Please note children are not allowed due to alcohol being served.
If you are interested in volunteering at Lanier – in any capacity (includes uniform store and Teachers appreciation lunch) – and you haven’t already registered for VIPS, please do so. After registering online and undergoing the annual background check, volunteers can work in any HISD school for the school year. Please have your drivers license with you when entering the school.
If you have any questions about the VIPS registration process or background checks, please contact Beth Lemon( VP of Volunteers)
