Influenza Update and Other Health Information 
For Parents and Guardians

  • Students who currently have BCPS medical forms on file in the clinic will automatically have new forms mailed to their home in May for the next school year. Remember, all medical forms expire each school year.  Medical forms can also be found here under the medical forms tab to the left.

 

  • For those students who have medications in the clinic, parents must pick up all medications by the last day of school or the medication will be discarded. 

 

  • Prevent mosquito bites and tick bites. The Zika virus from mosquitoes and tick borne illnesses are serious and vaccines are not available for prevention. Use insect repellent and eliminate all standing water around your home. Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents. When used as directed, EPA-registered insect repellents are proven safe and effective, even for pregnant and breastfeeding women (CDC, 2017). 



All children should be fever free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medications) before returning to school.

Please Remember:

  • All students need an Emergency Card on file in order to participate in field trips. 
  • Please have the appropriate medical forms on file in the clinic if your child/children have medical conditions.
  • All medication forms expire each school year, including the acetaminophen and antihistamine forms.
  • Please register your child/children in CareDox. This is our electronic charting system that notifies you of treatment provided to your child/children. CareDox is HIPAA & FERPA compliant. If you would like to register, email CareDox at activation@caredox.com

​As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the clinic and talk with a nurse anytime during the school day.  

Stay healthy and happy and remember to wash your hands!
