Dear Parents & Guardians,

I look forward to another year as the school nurse for PS – Grade 8 students at St. Anne’s-Belfield School, coordinating health care and health-related concerns. Throughout the 2022-23 school year, I will be sending out various communications with information or requests, but for now, I have a few items that I would like to address:

 

Complete your medical forms electronically in Magnus Health by Aug. 15.

  1. We highly recommend downloading the Magnus Health app in the Apple or Google Play stores.

  2. Depending on the age and how long they’ve been at the School, students have different requirements. Magnus Health will know based on your answers to preliminary questions what forms you will need for your student.

  3. If your child has a pediatrician appointment made for after Aug. 15, please contact me so I may make a note of it.

  4. Please keep in mind that Pre-School students and students new to the School may not be on campus without a completed entrance exam and immunization form.

  5. If your student’s medical information changes at any time after these forms are submitted, please contact me directly so that I can update them.

Review these medication guidelines carefully. St. Anne’s-Belfield School follows the Virginia State Law regarding medication administration. 

  1. The guidelines below apply to prescription as well as over-the-counter medications. If you feel your student may need Tylenol or Ibuprofen prior to school, please evaluate whether attending school is the appropriate action.

  2. Medication will only be given to students at School written permission from the parent/guardian and your child’s medical provider. The permission form is in Magnus Health. 

    1. Please note the School cannot administer any medication other than emergency medications to Pre-School students or during Saints After School (SAS).

  3. Medication should be brought in by the parent/guardian in a pharmacy-labeled container including the doctor’s name, student’s name, drug, time to be given, and amount. If the medication needs to be given at school, the parent/guardian needs to divide the amount into separately-labeled bottles for school. The medication guidelines also apply to those students who use inhalers and EpiPens.

  4. Medications will be stored in the nurse’s office. Students may not carry medication during the school day. If it is medically necessary for a student to store medication in the classroom or self-carry, then a special form must be completed by the parent and physician. 

  5. If your student is going to attend Saints After School (SAS) and needs emergency medications, then two supplies of these medications need to be provided to the school. One will be stored in the nurse's office and the other with the Saints After School staff. 

The health and safety of our community is a top priority. I encourage you to take a moment to review our protocols regarding illness and COVID-19, along with health and wellness support and programming. I welcome your communication regarding your student’s health or any details above. I am on campus through the month of June and will return in early August. You can reach me through the nurse’s office at (434) 295-0106 ext. 1260 or lmoore@stab.org.

Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,


Lisa Moore, RN

School Nurse, PS – 8
