From our school nurse… September 25, 2018

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.

Warmest regards,

Tina Hechler BSN, RN

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.

Coffee with the Principal 8:45 Tuesday, Sept 25th September 23, 2018
Now that we have the school year launched, Tuesday morning will be the first Coffee with the
Principal. Please come join me and our IB Coordinator, Ms Rhymes, for coffee and some yummy treats. This week we will be talking about what it means to be a learner-driven middle school, how this fits with our middle schoolers’ developmental strengths and needs, and how wonderfully this fits within the IB framework.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it, as Parent University and our Lanier Magnet Evening Tour Thursday night (starting at 5:30) is another opportunity to learn about this topic and more.
