The clinic is open daily while school is in session for the purpose of providing first aid for school-related illness and injuries. It is neither equipped nor designed to care for out-of-school injuries/illnesses, and it is not intended to take the place of parent directed medical care.

Please do not send in any medications with your student (including prescription medications, over-the-counter medications, etc.). If your child requires medication during the school day - there is a form which needs to be completed by a physician and signed by a parent. Parents/Guardians must bring the medication to school. Students are not permitted to carry medicine.

For more information from VBCPS, please visit the Overview for Health Services website.

Here are a few guidelines to help you decide when it is best to keep your child home:
~ IF they have a fever of 100 degrees or more
~ IF they are vomiting or have diarrhea
~ IF they have an unidentified rash or skin condition
~ WITH specific conditions, such as head lice or scabies, until properly treated

Immunization Update

As per the Code of Virginia and state legislation, the school division must comply with all requirements for immunizations as pertaining to school age children. There are specific regulations for DPT, Polio, MMR, Hepatitis B, and Varicella. In July 2006, legislation was passed requiring a pertussis booster for students entering 6th grade. Lack of compliance with vaccine requirements can result in students being excluded from school until compliance, or a plan for compliance is achieved.

Please keep the clinic updated with any health issues that you might have concerning your child. We also ask that you keep current phone numbers on file with us. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
