Welcome to Nurse Peabody's Corner!

My role in your child's education as a school nurse is to support their learning. This is accomplished by implementing strategies that promote student and staff health.   Please help me by filling out a health treatment plan or medication forms if your child has a chronic illness or requires medical attention during the school day.   My door is always open to discuss any health concerns you may have.  For any questions feel free to contact me at (703)445-0258 or peaboddj@pwcs.edu.

Medication in School

 

If your child needs to take medication at school, you must first fill out the appropriate medication permission form, per PWCS regulation 757-4 Attachment 1. 

Parents or guardians need to bring the medication to school, do not send it in with your child. Students are not allowed to carry medications in school for safety reasons.

Please be sure to remove any medications you place in your child's back pack if the backpack is used to transport medication after school and on the weekends.

Medication found in backpacks or in the students possession on school property is in violation of PWCS policies and may result in disciplinary actions. Exceptions to this rule is an Inhaler or Epipen if the doctor has signed a Treatment plan stating the student may carry the medication.
