Medication/Treatment Orders from your Healthcare Provider:
The appropriate medication/treatment authorization form(s) must be renewed at the beginning of each school year. Forms are available online at www.fcps.org or at your child’s school.
Please be aware of the expiration date on the pharmacy label when bringing the medication to the health room with the new authorization form. School health staff will determine medication expiration by the date printed on the pharmacy label. Note EpiPens, Diastat, Glucagon and inhalers have an expiration date printed on the container in addition to the pharmacy label. Therefore the container expiration date must be equal to or exceed the expiration date on the pharmacy label. Please make sure the expiration date on the individual medication container exceeds the expiration date on the label before leaving the pharmacy. Students are not permitted to self carry prescription or over the counter medications.
All medications need to be dropped off by parents with accompanying authorization forms completed.
FCPS is asking for your help keeping all our schools and communities safe. Please review the list of COVID-19 symptoms below with your student prior to leaving for school every day. You will be provided a weekly communication reminder of this requirement. Students who are ill or are experiencing symptoms are expected to remain at home.
Parents/Guardians are required to screen their student(s) daily with the following to three questions:
(a) Has your student tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days?
(b) Has your student been in close contact* with anyone who is either a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19?
(c) Is your student currently experiencing or displaying, any ONE of the following COVID-19 symptoms?
- Fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius) or higher
- Sore throat
- Difficulty breathing
- Diarrhea or vomiting
- New onset of severe headache
- New loss of taste or smell
If the answer is YES to any of the above statements, your student should not come to school. Please contact your healthcare provider with any questions regarding next steps for your student.
Thank you for your cooperation.
