Dragons are Allergy Aware
Carroll ISD restricts all peanuts and tree nuts from classrooms; this includes daily snacks, birthday celebrations and class parties.
Personal daily snacks:
may not contain peanuts or tree nuts. They do not have to be prepackaged with a label.
Classroom consumption foods:
must be coordinated by the parent with the classroom teacher, be store bought and have an ingredient label attached to the packaging.
Labels that state the following are NOT permitted as a classroom consumption food:
- “Contains peanuts or tree nut ingredients”
- “May contain peanuts or tree nuts”
- “Processed on shared equipment with nuts”
Thank you for helping keep our Dragons safe; although we cannot guarantee nut free, we can all help to reduce the risk of nut exposure. For safe food options please visit snacksafely.com
Free of Symptoms (Clinic Policy)
It is the goal of Carroll ISD to provide an environment that is conducive to learning for all students and staff. Some communicable diseases or conditions may warrant exclusion from school to avoid exposing other students. If your student exhibits any of the following symptoms, please keep your student home until the child is free of the symptoms and has been satisfactorily treated.
- Temperature of 100 degrees or above
- Vomiting and/or diarrhea
- Persistent cough
- Open, itchy or draining lesions
- Red, itchy, draining eyes
- Presence of live lice or nits in the hair
- Suffering from a reportable disease, as defined by the Texas Board of Health
- Undiagnosed scaly patched on the body or scalp
Your child must be 24 hours free of fever without Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen or other fever reducing medication and not vomiting for 24 hours before they return to school. Antibiotics must be taken for 24 hours before returning to school.
Teachers will not allow the student to call their parents from the classroom. If your child becomes ill, you or someone designated by you will be contacted to pick up your child. It is imperative that all phone numbers be completed on the enrollment card and be updated immediately should they change during the year.
Parents of students with a communicable or contagious disease are asked to telephone the school nurse so that other students who have been exposed to the disease can be alerted. Students with certain diseases are not allowed to attend school while their disease is contagious. These include chicken pox, mumps, measles, ringworm of the scalp, lice, fever, pink eye, fifth disease, and strep throat. More information can be obtained in the district handbook for students.
