• End of Year Clinic Reminders


    I have enjoyed helping to care for the health needs of your children this year! There are many things to think about as we approach the last week of school. Here are just a few reminders from the clinic:


    End of School Year Medication Pick up – All medication and equipment kept in the school clinic must be picked up by 1:30pm on the last day of school. Please come to the front office and give your student’s name to the Receptionist. The nurse will bring these items out to you along with a form to sign. All items not picked up from the clinic by the last day of school will be considered abandoned. Abandoned items will be destroyed in accordance with local, state, and federal laws. We cannot keep any medication or equipment in the clinic over the summer.


    Parents of RISING 7th GRADERS - Please contact your student's doctor to ensure all IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS have been met before school resumes in August.


    New Health Forms/Medications for the Upcoming School Year - With each new school year, it is necessary to update your child’s Health Forms in the school clinic. All students with medical conditions (i.e. asthma, allergies, diabetes, seizures, etc.) must submit new health care plans each school year. Please plan on completing these forms along with your student's doctor and return them to the School Nurse at Open House, or when school resumes in August. Please visit the school website for needed forms and more information (Student Services tab/School Nurse tab/Health Conditions and Medication).

         If you plan to supply the clinic with Medication for your Student's Use next year, (i.e. Tylenol, Advil, etc.) please complete a Request for Administration of Medication form for each medication. If medication is over-the-counter, only a parent/guardian's signature is required. For prescription medication, or any off-label dosing instructions for over-the-counter medications, the form must also be signed by your student's physician. Please return completed forms and medication to the school nurse by *parent/guardian drop off*. *Students are not allowed to carry medication on or off campus per the Forsyth County Schools Drug Policy. Please visit the school website to read all the information regarding safely transporting and keeping medications in the clinic (Student Services tab/School Nurse tab/Health Conditions and Medication).

         If you would like for your Student to Carry their own prescribed Emergency Medication next year, (i.e. inhaler, epi-pen, diabetes supplies, etc.) your student's physician must indicate they have been trained and are capable of carrying and self-administering the listed medication by completing the Authorization for Students to Carry form. This form requires three signatures: physician, student, and parent/guardian.


    All necessary Health Forms can be found at the link below and on the school website (Student Services tab/School Nurse tab/Health Conditions and Medication).



    Thank you, and please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions or concerns. Enjoy a FUN and SAFE summer!
