Clinic/School Nurse

Clinic Information
School Nurse: Ann Marie Grimm
School Clinic Assistant: Linda Simmons

 

Please call the school (804) 530-5733 to report any absence. There is an answering machine to receive your message at any time.


Medical/School Safety
The clinic is designed to provide only minimal emergency care.  It is imperative that parents provide accurate emergency information in the event that Bactine and Band-Aids are not sufficient first aid to handle the needs of the student.

 

STUDENT ABSENCES 
A sick child should not be in school. Students who are absent must bring a parental note on the first day they return to school stating the reason for the absence.  Children are expected to participate in Physical Education and recess.  To be excused from participating in physical education and recess requires a written parental request.  An extended absence from Physical Education and recess requires a physician's statement.

 

ADMINISTERING MEDICINE AT SCHOOL 
Medication, non-prescription as well as prescription, to be given at school requires the parent to complete the form, "Medication Administration Request."  A written order from the student's physician giving the name, dosage and time interval of medication is required for each medication.  The prescription label on the bottle may be accepted as physician's order.  The medication must be brought to school by the parent or guardian in the original container, properly labeled by a registered pharmacist.  Students are responsible for remembering to come to the clinic to get their medication.  Any uncertainties you may have in reference to administering medication should be referred to the clinic immediately.  Under no circumstances will internal medication be given without written parental consent.

  

NO MEDICATION IS TO BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL BY THE CHILD. THE PARENT MUST BRING THE MEDICATION TO SCHOOL.
