Welcome to the AMCMS
School Nurse's Office




My name is Kassidi Flater.  I am a Registered Nurse and this will be my 4th year as the School Nurse  at AMCMS and my 18th year as a Registered Nurse.  My goal of helping students stay healthy, in school and ready to learn  at school is most effective when there is a partnership among students, parents, healthcare providers and school personnel/administrators.  I encourage you to communicate with me whenever necessary in regards to your child's health and medical needs and concerns.

My office number is 979-694-5645
Office Hours are 8am-4pm

Medication Policies

Only medications that are required to enable a student to stay in school may be given at school.  Three times a day medication should be given before school, after school, and at bedtime.  If necessary, medication can be given at school under the following conditions:


MEDICATION MUST BE IN ORIGINAL PROPERLY LABELED CONTAINERS dated for the current school year and brought to school by an adult.  Medications must be age appropriate.

        MEDICATION SENT IN BAGGIES OR UNLABELED CONTAINERS WILL NOT BE GIVEN AND DESTROYED.  All prescription medication must be provided in a container with the pharmacist’s label attached.  Non-prescription OTC medication must be in the container with the manufacturer’s original label.  Physician samples must be appropriately labeled by the physician with the patient’s name and instructions.

        The first day dosage of any medication must have been given at home before it can be administered at school.

         An emergency plan for anaphylaxis and asthma + parental permission is required (separate form) for self-carry/self-administered emergency medications such as inhalers/EpiPens/Insulin. (See clinic documents to the left)

    FDA APPROVED OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN LONGER THAN 7 CONSECUTIVE DAYS WITHOUT A DOCTOR’S WRITTEN PRESCRIPTION.

Sports and the School Nurse

I work closely with each of our coaches to  monitor the health and medical needs of our students.  Please be aware of the school policies for exclusion from participation and attendance.  I do not write notes for students to not participate in athletics or PE.  There are a couple of exceptions: students with a history of asthma that develop problems during the day and students with diabetes.   


Recently Texas passed a new law requiring school districts to implement procedures on how to treat student athletes that suffer a concussion during play.  Please be aware that if your child athlete is participating in a school sponsored sport activity and suffers a concussion, they must be seen and cleared by a physician in order to return to play.  Also, if your child suffers a concussion outside of school and participates in sports at AMCMS, a physician's statement clearing them to return to play will be required.
