Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year from the Liberty High School Clinic. The following suggestions and information will help in getting the year off to a good start. Any forms noted below are available at the clinic or on the Web at the "Useful Links" page on this site. I will be in the clinic during the week of August 13-17 to meet with parents, accept medications and Doctor's orders. Please call the main office at 540-422-7360 to contact me before coming in.
1. If a Student requires medication to be administered at school, a parent or legal guardian must fill out the required form and bring the medication to the clinic in person. County policy requires a signed Physician's order for prescription medications and a Parent's signature for over-the-counter medications. Prescription drugs must be brought to the clinic in the original labeled pharmacy container. Over-the-counter medications must be in a new sealed container. Over-the-counter medications may not be given for more than ten (10) consecutive days without a Physician's order. Students may not carry any medications without specific authorization from the School. The School System policy on medications can be found in the Student/Parent Information Handbook.
2. Students having chronic medical concerns should have a Physician's Plan of Care form filled out by their Doctor and on file with the Clinic. Parents are always encouraged to call or visit the Clinic to discuss their Student's care.
3. In accordance with Commonwealth of Virginia Code, all 10th grade Students are screened for hearing and vision concerns. Parents wishing to "opt-out" their Student from this requirement must notify the school in writing.
