School Nurse


If your child has medications in the clinic, please plan to pick up by Friday, May 27, 2022 sooner than 2:00 PM.  Especially important for rising 6th graders.

Care plans needed for the 2022-2023 school year were sent home on Friday, May 13, 2022.  Please schedule an appointment with your child's doctor ASAP so there is no delay with completed care plans.  If able to bring these in by July 14th, it would be greatly appreciated.

IMPORTANT INCOMING KINDERGARTEN NEWS:
Big Island Elementary School has ongoing Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 year. Please bring a most recent Virginia School Entry Physical on or after August 1, 2021.  Also bring updated, signed immunizations. You are encouraged to schedule the health appointment ASAP as many physicians' offices cannot accommodate next day requests.  The sooner you get the paperwork in, the more likely this could impact the number of classrooms we can offer.
 
If your child has a health condition such as asthma, seizures, diabetes, life threatening allergies, dietary concerns, etc... please call the school nurse at your earliest convenience.  We want to assure your child's health and safety having the appropriate care plans, medications and supplies in place before the start of school.  You can find all relevant forms in the column to your left labeled "Medical Forms." 
 
Please check out the Spring Nurse Bulletin to your left.

COVID Guidelines have been updated by the Virginia Department of Health (VDOH).  You can click on the document to the left to see the latest information. 







Reinforce proper hand washing with your child (a minimum of 20 seconds with warm, soapy water).

MEDICATIONS:  All medications, including cough drops, require a parent to bring them in.  If it is an over-the-counter medication and the clinic can administer the medicine as directed on the packaging, a physician's written order is NOT needed.  If it is a prescription, the physician needs to sign the written order.  ALL medications require a parental signature.

All forms needed for medical purposes can be downloaded from "Medical Forms" in the column to the left.  Feel free to download to take to your doctor at any time.
