Medication and Health Form Drop Off

A medication and health form drop off has been scheduled for Monday, August 24 from 9-11 am.

This is the time you will need to bring any medications your student will need and all appropriate health forms needed for the school year.

Everyday Student, Staff and Visitor Screening

Each school day, students, staff and visitors will be asked to fill out a critical COVID Health Screening questionnaire. Find the buttons to access these at the top of Talon, within the Talon app, on the official Keller ISD and Timber Creek websites and below.

These screeners are very important, not only to self-check if a community member may have symptoms of the virus, but also for contract tracing if an outbreak occurs in school. Form data is secured and is only used for COVID screening purposes.
