Hello Huddleston Families!!

I just wanted to take some time to introduce myself. My name is Holly Hogan and I will be taking over as school nurse for Huddleston Elementary this year. I know I have BIG shoes to fill, but I look forward to seeing faces that I know and meeting many new ones! I just wanted to give everyone a little background about myself. I was born and raised right here in Huddleston! I am married with two children. I received my nursing degree from Lynchburg General Hospital School of Nursing in 2010 and went back to Liberty University and graduated with my Bachelors of Nursing in 2015. I began my nursing career in the Emergency Department at Lynchburg General Hospital where I worked for 7 years. I most recently started and ran a clinic for heart attack patients at Stroobants Cardiovascular, which I have done for the past year and a half.

Some of you may recognize me from the rescue squad, since I do volunteer with Huddleston Life Saving and First Aid Crew. I have also coached some teams with Huddleston Recreation Association. I am VERY excited for this opportunity and look forward to meeting and working with all of you. Please be patient with me since I will be learning as we go, but I promise you that I will be diligent with addressing any issues that may arise. I want to thank you for allowing me to work with you and your little ones!

I look forward to meeting each of you!

Sincerely,

Holly Hogan RN

                   Helpful Tips Picture       Helpful facts……

  • Parents that have a child with any medical concerns, physical handicaps, asthma, diabetes, heart or seizure disorder, food or bee sting allergy, etc. need to meet with the school nurse to discuss your child’s health needs.  It is important that you fill out the required papers so we can assist your child with any medical needs that may arise during the school year.
  • Please encourage your child to eat breakfast at home or school every day.
  • For the safety of everyone please do not send your child to school if they are sick.
  • If your child is on medication, please request a separate bottle from the pharmacy for the school clinic.  All medicine must be in the original container.
  • Please do not send medication to school by the child.  A parent or guardian needs to bring the medicine to school. This includes cough drops.
  • A physician’s authorization is required for all prescription medication. Any changes in medication dosage must have a physician’s order.  Each medication requires its own medication form.
  • A parent or guardian signature is required before medication will be administered.
  • Medicine must be picked up at the end of the school year; any medicine not picked up will be discarded.
  • The Authorization to Administer Medication form as well as the Care Plans are only good for one school year.
  • Non-prescription medication will be administered as instructed on the box, unless accompanied with a physician’s order instructing to do differently.

​Always check with the teacher to see if there are any food allergies in the class, before you bring food into the classroom. 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.  Food items that are brought into the class should be healthy. See the Healthy Food Snack list.
