Wards Creek Elementary Clinic
The clinic provides a vital service for our students at Wards Creek Elementary School. I always extend an open door policy for students, parents, teachers, and staff. If you have any questions about the St Johns County School District Medication Policy or Illness Guidelines please contact me. If you need medication authorization forms they are listed below.
All medications that need to be administered during school hours must have a Medication Authorization on file BEFORE the medication can be brought to school. This includes all prescription and over the counter medications, including Tylenol, Ibuprofen, any topical cream, ear drops, eye drops, vitamins and supplements. Local physicians are aware of the St Johns County Medication policy and will sign these requested forms. If you have any questions, please contact me at 904-547-8738. Please see the St Johns County School District Medication Policy below.
I need to Stay Home If…
- I have a fever of 100.0 or greater. Students MUST be fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications, such as Motrin or Tylenol.
- I am vomiting within the past 24 hours
- I have had diarrhea within the past 24 hours
Please see the illness guidelines below for more information regarding when your child should remain home from school.
Parents are highly encouraged to check their children as often as possible for head lice at home. If lice are found, please treat and contact the nurse for return to school instructions.
