Health Update March, 2019

·     The Virginia General Assembly passed legislation effective July 1,2019 that changes the grade in which studenta are evaluated for receipt of the Tdap vaccine from 6th to 7th grade. If your child received Tdap vaccine prior to entering 7th grade there is no further requirement. If your child has not received a Tdap vaccine prior to the start of 7th grade then it will be required before starting 7th grade. 

Clinic Information

As per each year, all paperwork for medication administration, care plans, emergency cards, etc. are only valid for the current school year.  New forms must be filled out each school year & returned to the school office or clinic. If a child has a medical condition, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the clinic and obtain the required paperwork.  It is extremely important that we have medical procedures/guidelines documented for your child in order to meet their health care needs.

If your child had a care plan or received medication at SRMS last year paper work was sent home with them the last week of school. If they did not give it to you polease ask them for it. 

MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION REMINDERS

•If your child is on medication please request a separate bottle from the pharmacy for the school clinic.  All medicine must be in the original container with a prescription label.

•Parent or guardian must administer the first time dose of any new prescription medication or any over the counter medicine that the child has never taken before. The parent should be in close supervision of the child for at least 12-24 hours to detect if any serious reactions occur.  New medication should not be administered for the first time at school.

•Please do not send medication with the child.  A parent/guardian needs to bring medicine to school.

•Physician authorization is required for all prescriptions, herbal medication & doses different than label.   Medication will be administered as instructed on box, unless accompanied with a physician’s order instructing to do differently.

•A parent or guardian signature is required before any medication will be administered.

•Medicine must be picked up at the end of the school year; medicine not picked up will be discarded.

•The Authorization to Administer Medication form is only good for one school year.

•Any changes in prescription medication dosage must have a physician’s order.  Each medication requires its own medication form.

•Acetaminophen (middle and high only) and emergency use Antihistamine are available in the school clinic providing there is written parent permission on file.

•Parent maybe contacted by the nurse if Acetaminophen is requested more than twice in one week.

I have enjoyed working with you this year to meet your child's health care needs. Have a safe, healthy & happy summer.
