• Health Conditions and Medication at School

     

    If your child has a chronic medical condition/illness, please click the link below to access the proper Action Plan and forms needed to address your student's medical needs while at school. Action Plans are only valid for one year; therefore, a new one must be completed each school year. Be sure to review plans with your student's medical provider and verify that all signatures are obtained (including the provider's) on all documents where indicated. Any student with a chronic medical condition or illness should have an Action Plan on file with the school nurse, to enable the nurse and staff the ability to provide the best care possible to your student during their time at school. See link below for forms.

     

    If your child needs to carry emergency medication, such as an epi-pen, inhaler, diabetic supplies, seizure medication, etc., the proper Action Plan and Authorization to Carry forms must be completed and on file in the clinic. See the link below for forms.

     

    If your child needs medication at school, either prescribed or over-over-counter, a Request for Administration of Medication form must be completed and on file with the school nurse in the clinic. See the link below for forms.

     

    Please note the following details from the Forsyth County Schools Medication Policy:

    *All medications must be FDA approved. Vitamins, supplements, oils, natural remedies, etc. can not be accepted. 

    *The parent/guardian must bring medication to the school in it's original container. Students cannot bring in their own medication. This is important for your student's safety and protection.

    *Any student found in possession of medication that does not meet the emergency medication requirements listed above is subject to disciplinary action.

    Please see the full details of the Forsyth County Schools Medication Policy located on the Request to Administer Medication form in the link below.

     

    End of the year policy: Medications must be picked up by a parent/guardian on or before the last day of school, or these items will be considered abandoned.  Abandoned medication will be destroyed in accordance with local, state, and federal laws/rules & guidelines by the school nurse and an administrator. Medications cannot be stored in the clinic over the summer break.
