Nurse's Nook

  • Information for Parents

    New students entering McVey must provide:

    • An up-to-date immunization record
    • A copy of a physical exam done within the past 12 months
    • A TB skin test or TB risk assessment done within the past 12 months

    In addition, a Kindergarten student must show documentation of a lead screening done some time in his/her life.


    All medications brought into school must be in the original container with a prescription label in place, (if prescribed), in order for the school nurse to administer medications to students during the school day. In addition, a written note from the parent/guardian is also required. Without all this information the school nurse is unable to administer medication to the student in school.

    Please note: All medications (controlled substance medications, non-controlled prescription medications and over-the-counter medications), must be picked up by a parent/guardian by the last day of school, and/or, if the child transfers or withdraws to another school. Medications for your child which remain in the school nurse's office will be disposed of on the last day of school.

    If a parent/guardian anticipates the his/her child will require medication while on a field trip, a contract must be signed between the parent/guardian and the child's teacher regarding administration for the medication. The medication must be sent separately from what the nurse has available in the nurse's office.
