Welcome to Hyde Park Health Services

At Hyde Park Schools, the health and safety of your children is our highest concern.  This page provides much of the information and related forms students need at Hyde Park.  However, our Health Services staff is happy to answer any questions you might have.

Immunization Information

Please make sure your child's immunizations are up to date. All records must be current by the first day of school.  If a student is not current, he or she will NOT be permitted to attend school. Please send a copy of all updated records to the school.  Please click the attachments in the sidebar to see Hyde Park's Immunization Policy as well as Texas Immunization Requirements.
 

Physicals

  • Hyde Park Physical Form
    Hyde Park Physical Policy
     
    The following students need a current physical:
    * All 7th grade students
    * All new Hyde Park students
    * All students participating in athletics
     
    **PLEASE NOTE:  A physical is current if it has been done within ONE YEAR.  If your child is playing a sport, they must get a new physical done each year!

Illness Policy

Illness at school is evaluated by the school health staff on duty. A student with the following symptoms will be sent home from school: 

• Fever of 100.4 degrees orally 
• Vomiting 
• Uncontrolled diarrhea 
• Suspected contagious condition/disease (i.e. pinkeye, lice etc) 

NOTE: A student must be free of fever (<100.4) for 24 hours without the use of fever suppressing medications to be readmitted to school.  In most cases, when prescribed an antibiotic, students must be on the antibiotic for 24 hours before returning to school.



In the event your child has a health emergency at school, and a parent cannot be reached, he/she will be taken to the nearest emergency facility.

**Automated external defibrillators (AED’s) are located on all HP campuses**

Required Screenings

Vision:
The state requires vision screening on all NEW students and those in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th grade.   
 
Hearing: 
The state requires all NEW students and those in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th have hearing screenings.   
 
Scoliosis:

***The State Health Department requires that all schools report these test results each year.  By keeping your child's health record at school up to date, it allows Hyde Park to be in compliance with the state and have a better health history of your child.  If there are any questions about the tests or your child's record, please call the nurse's office.
