JF Health Update
(
revised 10/05/2018)

  •  Health screenings for tenth grade students & transfer students will be conducted by BCPS nurses. Screenings will be done for vision, hearing & scoliosis. Parents will be contacted if any concerns are identified. If your child/ children receive a referral to a physician, please notify the clinic of any follow-up information. If the condition is known or you have scheduled and appointment, please notify the clinic.   
  • Allergy & cold season is here! If your child/ children suffer from asthma, make sure to have a non-expired inhaler available. All students who carry inhalers should have the proper BCPS Asthma Care Plan on file in the clinic. Keeping windows closed in the home will decrease allergens indoors. 
  • All children should be fever free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medications) before returning to school.

Students may carry cough drops with them but SHOULD NOT share with other students.

THOROUGH HAND WASHING IS THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST GERMS!!


Please Remember:

  • All students need an Emergency Card on file in order to participate in field trips. 
  • If your child/children are going on an overnight field trip, make sure to have the Medication Administration form filled out for any medications they need while on their trip. A form is required for each medication. 
  • 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!
