Student Health at Quander Road School

The School Health Aide and the Public Health Nurse are Fairfax County Health Department employees who work in collaboration with the school staff. Together we promote a safe and healthy educational environment by providing health support services and health promotion activities in the school setting.

Health Information Form

The Health Information Form is to be completed by the parent or guardian at the start of each school year. The completed form is to be returned to the school clinic.

Prescription Medications

Students who need to take medication during school hours must have a signed Medication Authorization, Release, and Indemnification Form. Prescription medications require the signature of both the parent and the physician. Inhalers and EpiPens require authorization forms.

Over-the-counter Medications

Over-the-counter (OTC) medications are drugs that can be purchased without a healthcare provider's prescription and are used for the relief of symptoms on a temporary basis.

With parent/guardian and physician authorization, OTC medications may be given on an "as needed" basis throughout the school year.

Parents/guardians may authorize limited use for 10 consecutive days with a completed Medication Authorization Form (such as cough medicine for cold symptoms).

OTC medications for pain relief ONLY for headaches, muscle aches, menstrual cramps or orthodontic pain may be given with parental/guardian permission and appropriate documentation. The medication must be supplied by the parent/guardian in its original container. Examples include Tylenol, Advil, Pamprin®. 

Transport of Medications to and from School

Parents must transport medications to and from school. All medications must be kept in the clinic and taken under adult supervision. Only certain emergency medications, such as diabetes medications, Epipen® and inhalers may be carried by the student with the authorization of both their parent/guardian(s) and healthcare provider.

Release of Student from School

Please make every effort to schedule appointments outside of school hours. When this is not possible, only those individuals designated on the Emergency Care Information form will be contacted either to excuse or take your student home. If the clinic contacts you to excuse your student from school, the clinic must have voice contact with the responsible adult to dismiss the student from school grounds. In an emergency, 911 will be called prior to contacting the parent.
