End-of-Year Letter from the Nurse's Office

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I wanted to share some information with you regarding pick up of medications. End of school early release days are Wednesday June 15 and Thursday June 16, dismissing at 11:45am. Thursday, June 16, 2022 is the last day to pick up your student’s over the counter and prescription medications that are in the clinic. A parent/guardian (or adult designee) must pick up the medication. It can’t be sent home with a student! If a designee is needed, email me at [email protected] with the name of who is picking up the medication.

You may pick up medications anytime between 7:30am and 3pm on the days leading up to June 16th. If you have NOT picked up medications by 3pm on Thursday June 16, 2022, the medication will be destroyed in compliance with the Isle of Wight County School Board Policy.

Additionally, Action Plans for medical care and medication orders are only effective for the current school year. Please contact your student’s health care provider to obtain a new Action Plan or medication order for the 2022-23 school year. Most doctor offices have copies of these forms, but here are the links, just in case!

  • Request for Medication Administration (Isle of Wight County Schools form)

  • Diabetes Medical Management Plan

  • Allergy Action Plan (LAMP form)

Students ARE allowed to have over-the-counter (OTC) medications signed into the clinic by their adult (ie: Tylenol, Midol, etc). The Request for Medication Administration form would need to be filled out for each medication. The physician does not need to sign it, just the adult.  A new, unopened bottle of medication and the form can be brought to the clinic in September. The clinic does not have OTC medication to dispense to the students!

Any questions can be directed to the SHS Clinic at 757-357-8783. 

Best Regards,

Nurse Myhr
