Immunizations, Medication Administration, Allergies and More
With spring break just around the corner it is crucial that our CHS community remain steadfast in our commitment to keeping our families safe and healthy. Please see the guidance below regarding COVID-19 and spring break.
What is vaping?
- Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by the heated nicotine liquid of an electronic cigarette, vape pen, or personal vaporizer. It’s also commonly called JUULing.
- What originated as a smoking cessation aid has quickly become a popular — and addictive — product in its own right.
- Encourage students to take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories about COVID-19, including social media if they are feeling overwhelmed or distressed.
- Promote students eating healthy, exercising, getting sleep, and finding time to unwind.
- Encourage students to talk with people they trust about their concerns and how they are feeling.
Students must be Healthy to be Educated and Educated to be Healthy
New for the 2020-2021 school year! We are blessed to have a new health clinic and a full-time registered nurse on duty during school hours. Mrs. Dellinger is available for the support of the well-being of student’s health, the assessments and care for chronic and acute illness, and first aid for school-related injuries. Together, you, your child, and the school nurse can build a relationship to benefit your child.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child for the nurse, please feel free to email or call.
School phone: 757-615-0246
Please be sure to read the COVID-19 Attendance Guide for Parents and Families. (It starts with YOU!)
Each family must fill out medical information pertaining to their child through Magnus Health.
If you have not done so already, please access the Magnus Health Student Medical Record for your child/children by accessing the MEDICAL link under the STUDENT tab in Parents web. This will automatically log you in to the “Magnus Health Portal.”
If your child needs to take medication throughout the school day, parents must complete the Request for Medication Administration form and turn it into the nurse.
This is required for all Over-the-Counter and Prescription medications.
If your child self carries medication such as an Epi-pen or Inhaler please make sure the self carry form is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
If your child has Asthma, Allergies, Seizures, or Diabetes please make sure an Action Plan is filled out and the nurse and student have a copy.
According to the VDH to ensure safety with a household contact quarantine, you must have complete separation from the person in the house with COVID-19 ( this means no contact, no time together in the same room, no sharing of any spaces, such as a bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom).
