Parents must bring all medications to school. Students are NOT allowed to transport medication to and from school.
Our clinic staff includes a Registered Nurse and Clinic Assistant who work together to promote optimum health for the school community. Functions of our school health team include:
Parent will complete a medication administration request form and provide the medication in the original, unopened, packaging with the student’s name on it. Per CCPS Policy, school personnel may not administer non-prescription medication more than twice a day, more than three consecutive days, or more than three times per month without the written authorization of the student’s licensed health care provider. All medication will be brought to the clinic by the parent.
School personnel will administer prescription medication to a student only with a written order from the student’s licensed health care provider that specifies the name of the medication, required dosage, and time the medication is to be given. A medication request form will be completed by the parent and provider. The medication, in its original container will be brought to the clinic by the parent. Students are not allowed to transport medication to and from school.
If your student requires prescription medication at school, please provide the required order when presenting the medication to clinic personnel. There are two medication request forms. One is for prescription medications and one is for over-the-counter medications.
Students with health concerns such as asthma, diabetes, seizures & life-threatening allergies will need to have a health plan form completed by a physician. You may find these forms online at the Student Health and Safety link below. These forms are also available in the clinic.
Parents of students with health concerns are encouraged to contact the school nurse.

As part of our efforts to provide a safe and secure environment for students and staff, CCPS is working in partnership with Chesterfield County Government to test drinking water throughout the school division.
In 2020, the Virginia General Assembly enacted new legislation regarding testing for drinking water in schools. The legislation requires school boards to develop and implement a program to test for lead in drinking water:
Each local school board shall develop and implement a plan to test and, if necessary, remediate potable water from sources identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as high priority for testing, including bubbler-style and cooler-style drinking fountains, cafeteria or kitchen taps, classroom combination sinks and drinking fountains, and sinks known to be or visibly used for consumption. Such plan shall be consistent with guidance published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the Department of Health. The local school board shall give priority in the testing plan to schools whose school building was constructed, in whole or in part, before 1986. Each local school board shall submit such testing plan and report the results of any such test to the Department of Health. Each local school board shall take all steps necessary to notify parents if testing results indicate lead contamination that exceeds 10 parts per billion.
The Chesterfield County Risk Management’s Environmental Health Safety Office, in partnership with the Chesterfield County Public Schools Facilities Department, has developed a plan that provides guidance to meet these requirements. The plan is based on recommendations provided through the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s 3T’s for reducing lead in drinking water.
A triennial testing program has been developed for all school buildings, with prioritization of facilities built before 1986. Each school will be tested every 3 years.
The planned testing schedule is below. If test results require that action is taken to remediate the water source, the school will communicate this information to families and staff.
School year 2021-22: completed (oldest schools built before 1987)
School year 2022-23 (remaining schools built before 1987)
School year 2023-24 (schools built after 1987)
It is illegal for anyone under 21 in Virginia to purchase, use or possess any tobacco or nicotine product. It is also illegal for anyone to purchase tobacco products for (or sell to) underage youth. Nicotine in any form is highly addictive.
E-cigarettes/vapes are the most commonly used tobacco product among U.S. and Chesterfield County youth. Vapes may contain nicotine, although they may be used to deliver marijuana and other drugs. Other tobacco products youth may use include cigarettes, cigarillos, cigars, nicotine pouches and synthetic nicotine products.
Most youth who vape or use tobacco products want to quit. If you talk to youth early and often about substance use, including tobacco and nicotine, they are more likely to respect your rules and advice. Here are resources that offer help:
