General LMS clinic information

The nurse at LMS assists students in academic success by providing medical treatment that may be needed during the school day. If your child/children have a medical condition or allergy, please notify the nurse and have proper documentation so that we can provide the best possible care to your child/children.

 All forms expire each school year and need to be resubmitted at the beginning of each new school year.

  • The LMS nurse uses SchoolCare for electronic charting. Parents benefit by registering your child/children as emails are sent when your child/children receive treatment in the clinic.  To register your child/children email [email protected].
  • Students may not carry medication. Epi-pens, inhalers, and diabetic supplies may be carried if and only if the proper Bedford County Public School (BCPS) form is on file in the clinic.
  • If a daily prescription medication needs to be administered by the clinic staff, a BCPS medication form needs to be filled out and signed by the physician and parent. Medication needs to be brought to the clinic by the parent in a prescription bottle, labeled by the pharmacy.
  • If a student requires over the counter medication to be kept in the clinic, a BCPS form can be filled out and signed by the parent and the parent can supply the clinic with a small bottle that is not expired.
  • 6th grade students may carry cough drops with them but should not share with other students.
  • If antihistamine is administered by the clinic staff for an allergic reaction, your child/children must be picked up.
  • Hearing and vision screenings are completed on all 7th grade students and new transfer students. Parents are notified if there are any concerns. If you do not want your child/ children screened please notify the school nurse in writing by the first week of school.
  • Students sent home with a temperature greater than or equal to 100 degrees need to be fever free for 24 hours (without the use of fever reducing medications) before returning to school.
  • Please keep the clinic staff updated with any medical concerns or changes in contact information. In case of an emergency, the school staff needs to be able to contact parents.
