Mrs. Sharon Rhodes LPNThe goal of School Nurse is to ensure academic success by promoting the health, safety and well being of QACHS Students.
The school nurse is available on a daily basis for assessment and counseling regarding health issues. Students should come during non-academic times, except in an emergency situation. Students are required to have a pass from the teacher of the period in which they are visiting the nurse. Students who become ill during the school day must see the nurse for dismissal. The nurse will make arrangements with a parent or emergency contact for dismissal. A dismissal pass will be issued which needs to be turned into the main office before the student leaves the school. All accidents that occur at school must be reported to the teacher and the nurse before leaving school.
All Medication, prescription and non-prescription, must be kept in the nurse's office. Medications must be sent in the original bottle. Written permission from the doctor and a parent/guardian is required for the nurse to administer medications. That form is available for download: School Medical Administration Form
The only medication that the nurse can administer without a doctor's order is Tylenol, plain cough medicine and cough drops. Please understand discretionary medications may only be given no more than two consecutive times; should he/she need additional medication, their parent/guardian will be notified.
A discretionary medication form must be be signed by a parent/guardian. That information is to be filled out at the beginning of the year through Infosnap
