Welcome to CMS Clinic 723-2190

Shannon O'Connor RN

All rising 6th graders must provide proof of T-Dap immunization by the first day of the new school year.

 As a registered nurse, I am here to provide emergency medical care, screen children for 
 illness, teach health maintenance, administer medication, administer physician ordered
 treatment and/or procedures, and sometimes to be a good listener.  If I can be of help to you
 or your children, please do not hesitate to call the clinic at 723-2190.

 IF YOUR CHILD IS SICK PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL’S SICK LINE TO REPORT THE ABSENCE
 at 723-2170.

 REMINDER!!  Always update the clinic emergency cards with any new medical
 information or changes in phone numbers.

 

MEDICATIONS

The Hanover County medication policy requires that all medication be transported to and from school by an adult. DO NOT send medication to school with a student. The parent is required to fill out a written permission form to dispense medication at school. Prescription medication must also have a doctor's written order. All medication should be in the original container or pharmacy labeled bottle. No medications will be accepted in a baggie or an unlabeled bottle.  Click here to download the Medication Permission form. 

Students are allowed to carry inhalers and epi-pens if a written order is received from the physician stating they may do so. The clinic does not provide cough drops. Cough drops may be carried by students and do not require written permission from the parent. Students are encouraged to eat before coming to school or eat breakfast in the cafeteria. 

When do students need to stay home from school?

 Children with a fever 100 degrees or > will not be allowed to return to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medication such as Tylenol, Advil, or aspirin. Be aware that some combination cold medications contain these ingredients. 

 

Health Screenings are conducted each year as a free service to Hanover County students. This is done to identify any physical problems which may impact their ability to learn. 7th graders are screened for vision and hearing. If your child has an abnormal screening, a letter will be sent indicating the need to follow up with you family physician.
