McCamey Independent School District
School Health Advisory Councils (SHACs)
A School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is a group appointed by the school district to serve at the district level. Members of the SHAC come from different areas of the community and from the school district. Texas law (Texas Education Code, Title 2, Subtitle F, Chapter 28, Subchapter A, $28.004) requires the establishment of a SHAC for every school district. SHACs are required to meet at least four times each year.
SHACs assist the districts in ensuring that local community values are reflected in health education instruction. Additionally, SHACs play an important role in strengthening the connection between health and learning. They can help parents and community stakeholders reinforce the knowledge and skills children need to stay healthy for a lifetime. - Texas Department of State Health Services SHAC Committee

Vaccine Preventable Illness Updates
In the event that a student who is not fully immunized is exposed to measles (or if we have a case on a campus), by Texas state law, that student must be excluded from school a minimum of 21 days, even if they are not showing any symptoms. This exclusion period starts over with any new exposure or confirmed case. Please make sure your students are fully immunized to keep them protected from the measles, and in school so they can be prepared for college and career.
Medication: If there is a need for your child to take prescription or over-the-counter medication at school, please fill out a Medication Permit.
Medication must be in original container/package
Over-the-counter medication can be administered for a total of 3 consecutive days
Medication purchased in a foreign country cannot be given
No medication is prescribed by the school
Controlled medication (ex: Ritalin, Concerta, Focalin, Straterra or medications for pain control) or any prescribed medication for behavior will be sent home with student. Whenever possible these types of medications should be given at home. All medication of this type MUST be picked up from the clinic by a parent or legal guardian.
All prescribed controlled medication, medication prescribed for behavior control, or medication for pain control be delivered to the clinic by parent or legal guardian. McCamey ISD will not accept responsibility for these types of medications until they are delivered to the clinic.
Students are not allowed to carry and self administer any medication without Dr signature and release.
Health Conditions: If your child has any of the following conditions that require medical care or interventions at school, please have your health care provider fill out forms and return to school nurse. Forms need to be filled out annually before the beginning of each school year.
