Fever

  • You will be called to pick up your student for a temperature 100° F or higher.
  • Students with a temperature 100° F or higher will not be allowed to return to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication such as Tylenol, or Advil. 
  • Be aware that some combination cold medications contain these ingredients. 
  • Please resist the temptation to give acetaminophen or ibuprofen, send your student off, and cross your fingers. The fever may be reduced, but their contagiousness will not be.

Medications

  • A medication administration form must be completed for each medication and signed by a parent/guardian annually and immediately if changes occur. 
  • All medications must be brought to the school by a parent/guardian.
  • Prescription medication must in the original container supplied by the pharmacy. Many pharmacies will provide a “school bottle” for prescription medications. Just ask the pharmacist.
  • Medication labels must contain the student’s name, the name of the medication, directions for use and fill date. Physician’s order and medication labels must agree.
  • ANY medication given more than 10 consecutive school days must be authorized by a physician in writing (including non-prescription medication). The prescription label on the bottle will be accepted as the physician’s order for those medications given for less than ten consecutive school days. 
  • Non-prescription medication must be in the original manufacturer’s container.
  • No medications will be accepted in a baggie or an unlabeled bottle.

Epi-Pens & Inhalers

Students are allowed to carry inhalers and epi-pens if we receive a written order from the physician stating they may do so.

Cough Drops

Students may carry cough drops and do not require written permission from the parent. We do not carry cough drops in the clinic.

Eating

Please encourage your child to eat breakfast at home or in the cafeteria before school. We do not have snacks in the clinic.

Health Screenings

We conduct health screenings each year as a free service to Hanover County students. This helps identify any physical problems that may impact a student's ability to learn. We screen seventh graders for vision and hearing. If your child has an abnormal screening, we will send a letter home indicating the need to follow up with your family physician.
