Addressing student health consists of many different components. It incorporates the complete mental, physical, and social well-being of the child. St. Gabriel’s encourages healthy behaviors for all of our students, staff, and families. St. Gabriel’s will continue to follow the guidelines for universal precautions to also prevent the spread of illness as it occurs. Health procedures and guidelines related to COVID-19 will be updated regularly according to guidance from the CDC and the Texas Education Agency. For detailed COVID-19 precautions, please see below
. Additionally, our school nurse is always available to answer questions.
A systemic approach to addressing each student’s health needs begins with our computerized charting system, Magnus Health. Every August, new students, as well as returning students charts must be updated with current health information, including health history, physical exams/health screenings, immunization records, medication lists, chronic conditions and/or allergies. Students with severe allergy/asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy must place an “action plan” on file with the nurse prior to the beginning of the school year.
