  • Be aware that some combination cold medications contain these ingredients. 

  • Please resist the temptation to give acetaminophen or ibuprofen, send your student off, and cross your fingers. The fever may be reduced, but their contagiousness will not be.


  • A medication administration form must be completed for each medication and signed by a parent/guardian annually and immediately if changes occur. 

  • ALL MEDICATIONS must be brought to the school by a parent/guardian.

  • ANY medication given more than 10 consecutive school days must be authorized by a physician in writing (including non-prescription medication). The prescription label on the bottle will be accepted as the physician’s order for those medications given for less than ten consecutive school days. 

  • Non-prescription medication must be in the ORIGINAL manufacturer’s container.

  • No medications will be accepted in a baggie or an unlabeled bottle.

Epi-Pens & Inhalers

Students are allowed to carry inhalers and epi-pens if a written order is received from the physician stating they may do so.

Cough Drops

May be carried by students and do not require written permission from the parent. The clinic DOES NOT carry cough drops.


Please encourage your child to eat before coming to school or eat breakfast in the cafeteria. The clinic does not have snacks.

Please visit the Virginia Department of Education School Health Office website for parent information on eating disorders within the school setting.

Health Screenings

Health screenings are conducted each year as a free service to Hanover County students. This is done to identify any physical problems which may impact their ability to learn. 10th graders are screened for vision and hearing. If your child has an abnormal screening, a letter will be sent home indicating the need to follow up with your family physician.
