As of School Year 2018/2019, LCPS Health Offices will NO LONGER
provide stock acetaminophen (Tylenol).
As of the 2018/2019 school year, acetaminophen (Tylenol) will no longer be stocked for student use in our school health offices. According to Virginia State Medication Guidelines, all medication must come from home. Based on these guidelines, LCPS staff will discontinue the practice of providing acetaminophen, or any other unauthorized medication to students. Instead, of acetaminophen, students may be given water, rest and ice for headaches, and will be evaluated for other symptoms of illness or injury. A statement regarding this change can be found in the 2018/2019 Student Rights and Responsibilities.
Parents or guardians who prefer to have acetaminophen available at school for their child can complete the Authorization for Medication Administration form and bring the completed form along with a small bottle of acetaminophen to the health office. School Nurses and Health Clinic Specialists should contact parents or guardians prior to the administration of the child’s own acetaminophen.
Please contact Jeannie Kloman, Supervisor for Student Health Services if you have any questions. Mrs. Kloman can be reached at 571-252-1017 or Jeannie.email@example.com.
