Previous Healthy Habits
Healthy Habit #1:  STAY HYDRATED!
Drink water whenever you are thirsty. Drink water before, during, and after exercise. Avoid drinking caffeine-containing drinks to quench your thirst as they are diuretics and cause you to lose water.
Healthy Habit #2:  SLEEP!
Kids your age should be getting 10 hours of sleep a night.  Use this simple math formula.  What time do you get up in the morning?  Add 2 to that number, and THAT is the time you should go to bed at night.  Example:  If you get up at 7:00am, you should go to bed at ( 7+ 2) 9:00pm. Your body needs time to recharge at night, just like your electronics!
Healthy Habit #3:  WASH YOUR HANDS
The #1 way to stay healthy during flu and strep season is to wash your hands often and correctly.  Use warm soap and water; scrub wrists, hands, between fingers, and nail beds for the amount of time it takes you to sing the Happy Birthday song.  
Healthy Habit #4:  USE HAND SANITIZER
When soap and water are not available, use one pump of hand sanitizer on hands.  Rub all over hands, wrists, between fingers, and nailbeds. ALLOW TO AIR DRY!  This gives the alcohol in the sanitizer time to destroy the cell wall of bacteria and viruses. Keep a hand sanitizer in your lunch kit and use if before and after you eat!
Healthy Habit #5:  COVER YOUR COUGH
Coughing can shoot germs out into the air and cause other people to get sick. Cough into your shoulder, not your hands.  Remember, Dabbing Can Save Lives.

Healthy Habit #6:  BE KIND TO YOUR EARS!
Do you know the 60/60 rule? To protect your ears when listening to music with ear buds or head phones, use maximum 60% volume on your device for 60 minutes - then take a break!

Weekly Healthy Habit #7: BUILD HEALTHY BONES!
A student your age should get 1300mg of calcium a day to have healthy bones and teeth.Calcium is found in:
  • dairy products, such as milk, cheese, and yogurt
  • leafy green vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, bok choy
  • canned salmon and sardines with bones
  • calcium-fortified foods — look at the labels for special orange juice, cereals and crackers
If you drink 3 cups of lowfat milk each day and eat one other calcium rich food, you will get your 1300mg.

The state of Texas requires all students to be immunized or to have a current conscientious objection on file in order to be enrolled in public school. State law prohibits students from being enrolled or staying enrolled if immunization requirements are not met or lapse during the school year.

The Mitchell clinic will dispense prescription or over-the-counter medication if these medications need to be given during the school day.  Prescription medications must be in a current, labeled pharmacy bottle.  Over-the-counter medications must have an expiration date good for the entire school year and be in a small dose bottle. An adult must bring in the medication (even if it is just cough drops) and fill out the appropriate permission form.

If your child has a diagnosis of asthma or uses an inhaler, even occasionally at home, please bring a second inhaler to keep at school. We will need an Asthma Action Plan for the new school year, signed by your doctor and you.

If your child has the potential for a severe allergic reaction to food, insects, latex, or other allergens, please submit a Severe Allergy Action Plan signed by your doctor and you. This Action Plan must be current for each new school year. Please bring emergency mediations with expiration dates that last through the school year by the first day of school.

We strive to provide a healthy environment for all of our Mitchell Mustangs.  Please keep your child at home if he or she has:

  • fever
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • rash of unknown cause
Your child may return to school once s/he feels better and is symptom-free for 24 hours without the help of medication.
PE.png

If your child is injured and unable to participate in PE, please bring a doctor's note. We can not allow a child to resume PE until cleared by the physician.  

For injuries not seen by a doctor, we can accept a parent note for 3 school days but require a note from the physician for any restrictions after that.  

Students may use crutches at school if you bring a doctor's note.
