Medication
Any medication, such as Tylenol, ibuprofen, cough drops or prescription medicine, must be brought in the original container by the parent or guardian so that it may be administered to students.  A Medication Administration form will need to be filled out beforehand.  These forms can be found in the clinic, front office, or printed out (see below).
 

Individualized Health Care Forms
Individualized Health Care forms are required for all students with a diagnosis such as asthma, diabetes, seizures, severe food, environmental or insect allergies that necessitate the availability of a plan of care and procedures to follow.  Parents are responsible for providing the updated annual forms to the school.  All necessary forms are available in the clinic.
 
 
Transfer Students
Transfer students must show immunization documentation when registering at RMS.  Parents of transfer students are welcome to visit the clinic for clarification of any health concerns or policies that may be different from the previous school district.


Immunization Requirement Prior to Entrance into 6th Grade
A T-dap booster shot is required for entry into the 6th grade if there has been at least 5 years since the student’s last tetanus-containing vaccine.  According to a memo received from the Virginia Department of Education, there will be no grace period for the T-dap vaccine.  Students will be required to have a completed shot record upon enrollment.  Please check with your child’s doctor regarding this booster shot.

Fever-Free Policy

Students with a fever of 100.5° F or higher should not be at school.  They will need to remain at home until they are fever-free without medication for at least 24 hours.
