Our school nurse is Anne Delphia, RN. She works in the clinic each day from 7:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. Mrs. Delphia joins us after being at Dominion Trail Elementary for the past 4 years. Mrs. Delphia is a registered nurse and before joining LCPS, she spent many years working in hospitals and nursing homes.
If your child has any significant medical needs, please notify Mrs. Delphia, even if the school has been notified in previous school years. If your child has asthma, diabetes, seizures, life-threatening allergies, or other medical conditions you should pick up forms for you and the physician to complete so the school can understand and address your child's needs. If your child was in Loudoun County Public Schools, these forms were sent to you at the end of school in June.
A parent or guardian must deliver any medicine (prescription or non-prescription) to the school office or clinic. Students may not transport any medicine to or from school. Parents are responsible for picking up any unused medicine.
Mrs. Delphia must have written instructions from the physician in order to administer prescription medications. These should include:
name and purpose of the medicine
dosage and time of administration
possible side effects and measures to take if those occur
end date for administering the medicine
parent signature giving permission to administer medicine and to contact physician
Loudoun County Public Schools have a special "Medication Form" which should be used. Copies of the form are also available in the school office.
All prescription medicine must be in the original pharmacy bottle with the proper label containing the student's name, medication, dosage, and instructions for administration. If you ask, the pharmacy will give you an extra bottle with the proper amount of medicine for school.
If Mrs. Delphia needs to give non-prescription medicine,
Children who have fevers should be kept at home until free of fever for 24 hours.
Be sure to keep the "Emergency Information" up-to-date so that we can reach you if your child is ill or injured.
All 3rd graders and students new to Loudoun County Public Schools will be screened for vision and hearing during the first two months of school. Kindergarten students who did not have distance vision screening or hearing tests with audiometers reported on their School Entrance Physical Examination form will also be screened.
