Welcome back to school! My goal is for all of the LHS community to have a healthy and happy school year.
Students must come to the clinic when they are not feeling well to be dismissed. They are not to call from their cell phones or text to have someone pick them up. Clinic hours: 7:15 AM-2:45 PM
Prescription Medications: FCPS personnel may give prescription medication to students only with a physician's written order and written permission from the student's parent or guardian 7-5.3a (F1). The order must include the name of the medicine, the dosage, the time, the amount, and the duration of the order. Such medicine must be in the original pharmacy labeled container and delivered to the principal, school nurse, or School Division designee by the parent/guardian of the student unless other arrangements have been made.
Non-prescription Medications: FCPS personnel may give non-prescription medication to students only with the written permission of the parent or guardian 7-5.3a (F2). Such permission shall include the name of the medication, the required dosage of the medication, and the reason the medicine is to be given. Such medicine must be in the original unopened container and delivered to the principal, school nurse or School Division designee by the parent/guardian unless other arrangements have been made. In order for a non-prescription medication to be given to a student for more than ten (10) consecutive school days, written permission from the child's physician shall be required.
A doctor’s note is required for use of the elevator. Generally, when a student no longer needs to use crutches, they no longer need the elevator except if there is a doctor’s note to continue.
ALL medications, prescription and non-prescription, shall be kept in the clinic and are not to be in the student's possession at any time.
ALL medications will be discarded on the last day of school if not picked up by a parent or guardian. No medications will remain in the clinic for next year per FCPS policy.
CLASSROOM HEALTH PLANS: Students with diabetes must have their new forms and their supplies in place on the first day of school. Students with chronic conditions such as asthma, seizure disorders, and allergies requiring epi pens are strongly encouraged to have health plans turned in on or before the first day of school. These students are also encouraged to have self-carry permission for inhalers and epi pens. The clinic will be open and available for dropping off medicines and completing forms beginning Monday August 10th.
All 10th graders and newly enrolled to Virginia public schools will have hearing and vision screenings done in the Fall. You will be notified if your child needs follow up.
