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 medication

Tobacco/Vaping Resources

According to the CDC, in 2014, e-cigarettes (also called E-cigs, Vapes, Mods, Juuls, NJoy, Puff Bars, Pods, Suorin, Tank Systems and ENDS- Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems) surpassed combustible cigarettes as the most commonly used tobacco product among U.S. middle and high school students reporting current tobacco use. By 2017, more than 2 million teens were currently using e-cigarettes, and parents, teachers, and school administrators across the nation began raising alarm about pervasive e-cigarette use in schools due to the rising popularity of products with high nicotine levels and low aerosol emissions, like JUUL. Nearly all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, contain nicotine. Youth nicotine use can lead to addiction and can harm the developing brain, impacting learning, memory, and attention.Feb 11, 2019

According to 2019’s Prevention Needs Assessment Survey conducted in Chesterfield County Public Schools, vaping is now the most popular substance being abused by Chesterfield youth. Data from the same survey show that between 2017 and 2019, Chesterfield County Eighth grade students almost doubled the percentage of students trying e-cigarettes, while the other grades surveyed remained roughly the same.

If your child is currently using nicotine products, such as vapes, and would like to quit, please refer them to the resources below. Nicotine addiction is tough to quit, but support is available.
