The clinic at Evergreen is designed for providing only minimal emergency care. It is imperative that parents provide us with accurate emergency information in the event that bandages are not sufficient first aid to handle the needs of the student. We may not give aspirin or any other internal medication, unless the criteria in the section "Administering Medicine at School” is followed.
Administering Medicine at School
Medication, non-prescription as well as prescription, to be given at school will require the parent to complete the form, "Parent's Request for giving Medicine at School."

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. Non-prescription medications may be given three days each month with parent’s written consent. Additional doses require a doctor’s prescription. 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 ANY MEDICATIONS TO SCHOOL.

Nurses are not available in schools on a daily basis.
The Public Health School Nurses are employed by Chesterfield County Health Department. We work cooperatively with Chesterfield County Public Schools to promote optimum health for the school community. Here is just some of what we do:
Parents of students with health concerns such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, cardiac conditions or severe allergies should contact the public health nurse serving the child’s school.
