The following forms may be printed and delivered to the school clinic. Paper copies available upon request. 

The following forms may be picked up from the school clinic or requested from the school nurse.

  • Memorandum of Understanding for Private Duty Nurse
  • Release of Medical Information
  • Medically Fragile Health Services Plan

Fever

  • We will call you to pick up your student for a temperature 100° F or higher.
  • We will not allow students with a temperature 100° F or higher to return to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol, or Advil. (Be aware that some combination cold medications contain these ingredients.) 
  • Please resist the temptation to give acetaminophen or ibuprofen, send your student off, and cross your fingers. The fever may be reduced, but their contagiousness will not be.

Medications

  • Parents/Guardians must complete and sign a medication administration form annually and immediately if changes occur. 
  • A parent or guardian must bring ALL MEDICATIONS to the school.
  • Prescription medication must in the ORIGINAL container supplied by the pharmacy. Many pharmacies will provide a “school bottle” for prescription medications. Just ask the pharmacist.
  • Medication labels must contain the student’s name, the name of the medication, directions for use and fill date. Physician’s order and medication labels must agree.
  • ANY medication given more than 10 consecutive school days must be authorized by a physician in writing (including non-prescription medication). The prescription label on the bottle will be accepted as the physician’s order for those medications given for less than ten consecutive school days. 
  • Non-prescription medication must be in the ORIGINAL manufacturer’s container.
  • No medications will be accepted in a baggie or an unlabeled bottle.

Epi-Pens & Inhalers

Students may carry inhalers and epi-pens if we receive a written order from the physician stating they may do so.

Cough Drops

Students may carry cough drops without written permission from the parent. The clinic DOES NOT carry cough drops.

Eating

Please encourage your child to eat before coming to school or eat breakfast in the cafeteria. The clinic DOES NOT have snacks.

Health Screenings

Our clinic conducts health screenings each year as a free service to Hanover County students. This is done to identify any physical problems that may impact a student's ability to learn. We screen 10th graders for vision and hearing. If your child has an abnormal screening, we will send a letter home indicating the need to follow up with your family physician.
