End of year medication information
The end of the school year is almost here and all medication will need to be picked up from the school clinic. NO MEDICINES are allowed to be sent home with students. Please plan on picking up your child's medication the last day of school between 8:30am and 3:30pm. If you are unable to do so on that day, please contact the school nurse to arrange another time. Medication not picked up by June 17th, 2016 will be properly disposed of.
Vaccination required for 6th grade
All sixth grade students must receive a booster tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap) vaccine prior to entering middle school. Prior to the first day of middle school, September 6, 2016, you are required to provide written documentation that your student had a Tdap booster to the middle school they will be attending. Beat the rush and take care of this early!! Bring this vaccine documentation to Barrett before the end of the 5th grade year, and I will update your child's medical record and they will be ready to attend middle school. Please note: students without the required immunizations are not allowed to attend school in Virginia until these enrollment requirements are met.
Stafford County Health Dept.
The Tdap vaccine and any other immunizations mandated by law can be obtained free of charge at the Stafford County Health Dept., 1300 Courthouse Road, Stafford VA 22554, phone: 540-659-3101. Walk-In Immunization clinics are held every Friday from 8:00 am until noon, no appointment is needed. Please bring your student's immunization record with you if possible. Remember to get your vaccines early, beat the rush, and enjoy your summer!!!
NEW MEDICATION POLICY
Effective January 2nd, 2014, there will be a change to Stafford County Public Schools medication policy. We will no longer be able to give short term medications (such as antibiotics and eye drops) based on the prescription bottle RX number and label. All medications given in SCPS will require the Medication Permission form completed by the health care provider (doctor) and parent. The medication form can be found in the Health Services Section of the SCPS district web page. (There is a direct link from this webpage also, see class links to the right of this message.) If you have any questions or concerns please call me during regular school hours. 540-658-6464
