School Nurse:

Kim Walton, BSN RN                        kim.walton@bedford.k12.va.us

Welcome to the 20/21 school year at Staunton River High School! My name is Kim Walton, this is my first year at SRHS. If you have any question or concerns please feel free to contact me by email or phone (540-297-7151). My office hours are Monday - Friday 8:30am - 4:00pm. I look forward to meeting everyone, please stay health and safe. 

(Updated 8/11/2020)

Please make an appointment with the nurse to bring any necessary supplies or medications in to the clinic. If your child is taking any daily medications it is strongly recommended that he/she be taking it at home. This is for the health and safety of all students as it will assist with limiting clinic activity, extra travel in the hallways, and student contact.

COVID 19 preventions

The link in the column to the left has some great up date info from the CDC. Here are direct links for more information from the CDC and VDH.

Due to COVID-19 and recommendations from the CDC, if your child has asthma he/she will need to use their inhaler with a spacer in the clinic to maintain a healthy and safe environment in the classroom.

Parents need to make prompt arrangements to pick up their child, if/when they are notified the child is ill. This should be done in less than 1 hour, please keep your emergency contacts current. 


Health screenings for vision and hearing will be completed on all 7th & 10th grade students this fall, and any new students transferring from out-of-state schools, private schools or those whom have been home schooled. Those students who were found with a concern will have a letter mailed to the parent to notify them in November and December.  Follow up with a physician is recommended and we are asking if update can be given to school nurse.  There is a portion of the letter that has an area for physician to fill out. 
If you would like your remote learner to be screened, make an appointment with the nurse. 


7th Grade Entry Requirements:
P
arents of rising 7th grade students: To align with current guidelines, the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation effective July 1, 2019, that requires students entering 7th grade to have received the Tdap booster vaccination.  Proof of the vaccine will be REQUIRED prior to the start of their 7th grade school year.  If there is no documentation of this vaccine, your student will NOT receive their teacher or virtual remote access. 

Emergency Cards need to be turned in ASAP!  In the event of an emergency, and computer systems are not working, we will need accurate emergency cards on file to notify you.  These are also required to be on file before any student is allowed to go on a field trip.


CELL PHONE USE TO TEXT/CALL:

In the case of an illness, students are expected to come to the clinic prior to parental contact.
This process is necessary to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff in our school.

*Should the student contact the parent without coming to the clinic, the parent will be sent to the clinic to pick up their child.
*The student will then be called to the clinic where an assessment will be completed prior to being dismissed with the parent.
*While this assessment will be done in a timely manner, the students that are already in the clinic will be seen first as it is our priority to return students to class as quickly as possible.
