I Have Listed Some Information Below That Should Help Answer Questions You May Have Regarding My Role And The Operation Of The Clinic At Kelly Mill:
- Epi-pens, Albuterol, Benedryl, Tylenol, or Cough Drops cannot be supplied by the school. Medications of any type, even over-the-counter medications, should never be delivered by the child. We ask the parent to please bring medications to the clinic and fill out a Medication Administration form prior to the nurse administering it.
- A Request for Administration of Medication Form must be completed by the parent/guardian for each medication.
- A doctor's signature on all Care Plans and medication forms for prescription medications that will be given for longer than a two-week period is required.
- Food allergies of any kind are not recognized by our cafeteria staff unless we have a Food Allergy Action Plan signed by a doctor. These forms may be found on the Forsyth County Schools website or you may pick up forms from the nurse.
- Please keep our staff and the school nurse informed of any health conditions that could affect your child while at school.
- Children do have accidents at school: please be sure to send a change of clothing in their backpack to keep at school. This is for every grade, even older students have accidents/spills.
- Children may not return to school until a fever of 100.4 degrees or greater, diarrhea, and/or vomiting has stopped for a full 24 hours without the aid of medication.
- If your child has seen a physician and has ordered antibiotics, please keep your child home for 24 hours after the antibiotics have been started.
HEARING/VISION/DENTAL SCREENING IS DONE YEARLY FOR 2nd and 5th GRADE STUDENTS:
More information can be found on our FCS Health Services page.
- Please make sure if your child wears glasses or contacts that they bring them to school for screenings.
- If your student did not pass the first screening, a second screening will be done by a nurse and you will be notified if the results require a referral for further care.
