End of year clinic info for parents:

 

-If your child has medications or health supplies in the clinic, please come by and pick them up May 31, 2017. Any medications left in the clinic after this date will be destroyed.

 

-If you child has a chronic health concern (asthma, seizures, diabetes, life threatening allergy, etc) please watch your mail for a 2016/2017 care plan! Please get these completed prior to the start of school next fall so we will have the information we need to start the year off right!

 

-Reminder: We do not have allergy medicine in the clinic. If your child suffers from seasonal allergies, please have them take their medication at home prior to coming to school.

The BCPS nurses are excited to receive Grant Funding from the 
Bedford Community Health Foundation to move the school clinics into the digital age.  A BIG thank you to the Foundation Board for recognizing and supporting this need. Watch for more information to follow as we connect to CAREDOX for our Electronic Medical Records in the school clinics. As a parent you will have an active role in this process to allow for a quicker easier way of communicating your child's health information.
