Important Reminder from the Clinic:

As we are entering the cold and flu season, this is a reminder of the best health practices to decrease the spread and transmission of viruses in PWCS schools.   

Please remember to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw used tissues in the trash.  If you don't have a tissue, cough, or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.  Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, dry hands with a paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet.  If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizers may also be used to preform hand hygiene.  Remember to stay home when you’re sick until at least 24 hours without a fever or the use of fever reducing medicine.  Together we can help stop the spread of germs that may make you and others ill.

Clinic Information

The purpose of the school health program is to create an environment of wellness that supports student learning. Please help us by filling out a health treatment plan if your child has a chronic health condition or requires special medical treatments during the school day.

Our door is always open to discuss any medical concerns that you may have. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us, Beth Smith at [email protected], Lorna Swingle at [email protected], or Megan Spaziani at [email protected], or by phone at 571-402-3700.

Below are forms you can download if needed if your child has specific health needs that are necessary during school hours. Students are prohibited from carrying any medications without proper parental and physician written consent on file at school (updated annually), and medications are preferably to be kept in the School Clinic. Students may not bring any medication to or from school at any time.
