• COVID-19 High Risk Forms

    In Pearland ISD, we believe we provide the best opportunities for our students’ academic, social and emotional needs in a face-to-face learning environment. However, we recognize that some students with serious underlying health conditions may need to continue the 2021-22 school year in an altered or remote learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    If your student has a high-risk medical condition*, Pearland ISD plans to offer two options for your student’s learning:

    1. High-Risk Medical Exemption: Depending on the outcome of legislative decisions, Pearland ISD plans to offer a remote learning option for students who meet a high-risk medical exemption. Students who qualify with a high-risk medical exemption may not participate in any face-to-face extracurricular, on-campus activities, or school-sponsored events, including athletics, as a participant or spectator without prior approval. This is because it would open them up to possible exposure to COVID-19, just as being in the classroom on campus would. In addition, there will be limited course offerings for remote students (e.g., limited Pre-/Advanced Placement, CTE, Fine Arts, etc.). Courses taken in the remote setting will not count towards GPA and therefore may limit class rankings and other calculations.

    If your student has a high-risk medical condition, a Medical Certification for COVID-19 High Risk Exemption Form must be completed to participate in remote online learning at home.

    2. Additional COVID-19 Safety Protocols: Parents may request additional COVID-19 safety protocols be implemented on campus for a student at a school who is at a higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

    If you are going to request additional COVID-19 safety protocols for your on-campus high-risk student, a Request for Additional COVID-19 Safety Protocols Medical Certification Form must be completed.

    These medical certification forms must be completed and signed by a licensed health care provider and are subject to verification. Parent/guardian will be notified when the form has been verified and accepted.

    Procedure for submitting a medical exemption form for the 2021-22 school year:

    • Click on the link above to print the desired medical certification form.
    • Fill in your child’s name and campus.
    • Have your licensed health care provider complete and sign the form.
    • Turn in completed form by 4 p.m. on Friday, May 14, 2021 to the Pearland ISD Virgil Gant Education Support Center (1928 N. Main) or by email to highrisk@pearlandisd.org.

    If you have questions, please email highrisk@pearlandisd.org or call 281.485.3203 and ask for Christy Beck, School Health Coordinator. Fax Number is 281-412-1242.

    We look forward to welcoming all students to Pearland ISD for the 2021-22 school year.


  • COVID-19 Rapid Testing Student Consent Form

    Pearland ISD is adding a voluntary K-12 COVID-19 testing program for students. This program uses Abbott Laboratories BinaxNOW tests provided by the federal government. We will only test with your consent. In addition to written consent, you will receive a phone call before a test is administered to your child. You may provide consent for the district to administer this test on your child or yourself (if student age 18 or older), by completing the Consent Form below. The form is also available through Skyward Family Access.

Flu

  • Flu season is here! Here's what you can do:

     

    1. Stay Informed: TexasFlu.org is the DSHS site for flu information in Texas. Dial 2-1-1 for flu information and vaccination locations or use the Vaccine Locator to find out about vaccine availability in your area.

    2. Get Vaccinated: Get a flu vaccination now. It's the best way to protect yourself and others.

    3. Stop the Spread: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use hand sanitizer. Cover your coughs and sneezes. Stay home if you’re sick. Have a plan to care for sick family members at home.

Zika

  • What is Zika?

    The Zika virus is spread through the bite of certain types of mosquitoes. While it can cause fever, rash, joint pain and red or pink eyes, about 80 percent of people with Zika do not become ill or have symptoms. Zika also can be spread through blood transfusions and sexual contact.

     

    Should I Worry?

    Most of Texas has a long mosquito season and many people travel to places where Zika is active. This means you have a greater chance of coming into contact with the Zika virus and potentially spreading it to your loved ones and other Texans.

    Although rare, the Zika virus may also be among the causes of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a condition in which your immune system attacks part of your nervous system.

    The Zika virus also can be spread from mother to child, if the mother is infected with the Zika virus during pregnancy. The Zika virus has been linked to birth defects such as microcephaly, a condition where a baby’s head is much smaller than expected and can cause developmental delays.

     

    What Can I Do to Prevent Zika?

    Take these simple steps to protect yourself and your loved ones from the Zika virus.

     

    When You're Outside:

    • Apply EPA-approved insect repellent.
    • Wear pants and long-sleeve shirts that cover exposed skin.
    • In warmer weather, wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that covers exposed skin.

     

    When You're at Home:

    • Use screens or close windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of your home.
    • Remove standing water in and around your home. This includes water in cans, toys, tires, plant saucers, and any container that can hold water.
    • Cover trash cans or containers where water can collect.
