HES School Nurse

REMINDERS

 Pick up ALL medications on or before the last day of school. Should you decide to pick up medications prior to the last day of school, especially if your child has an Epi pen or inhaler, they still may need to use them here. Please keep that in mind!

  • Care plans were sent home for next year. Please hold on to those and have them ready for next year. Should you misplace them, you can find them on the HES school nurse website under the forms tab.

Rising 6th graders: remember to get your TDAP booster and have documentation for the nurse at the next level. Please meet this requirement by providing Staunton River Middle School with one of the following by July 16, 2018 if you have not already done so:

  1. Proof of immunization (copy of immunization record).
  2. A notarized religious exemption form with a raised seal or registration number.
  3. Medical exemption form signed by your physician indicating temporary or permanent exemption on the Virginia School Entrance Health Form.



 For new students

There is not medication at school for the nurse to give the students with the exception of Benadryl for allergic reactions ONLY. If you would like for your child to be able to receive Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cough drops, etc. then you will have to bring it in to the nurse and fill out the proper paperwork. If it is a prescription medication, a permission form must be signed by the parent and the childs' physician.


New kindergarten students: need a physical dated after August 1, 2017 and proof of up to date immunizations. If your child is scheduled for a physical that would be after the start of school, then a letter from the physician on their letterhead is needed stating when that appointment is.

​Always check with the teacher to see the process for celebrations. There are always food allergies within the class. Remember that food allergies are serious and can be life threatening. Treats can be non-food items such as pencils, markers, stickers, etc. ​Also consider any food or non-food item that could be a choking hazard.
