Welcome to the
band aid  Ashburn Elementary Clinic  band aid
 

Our Health Clinic Specialist is Mrs. Jennifer Knauss.  She works in the clinic each day from 7:15 a.m. until 3:15 p.m.  

 

If your child has any significant medical needs, please notify Mrs. Knauss even if the school has been notified in previous school years.  If your child has asthma, diabetes, seizures, life-threatening allergies, or other medical conditions you should pick up forms for you your child’s physician to complete so the school can understand and address your child's needs. If your child was in Loudoun County Public Schools, these forms were sent to you at the end of school in June.

 

Please note that a parent or guardian must deliver any medicine (prescription or non-prescription) to the school office or clinic. Students may not transport any medicine to or from school. And at the close of school in June, parents are responsible for picking up any unused medicine.  Medications that are not picked up at the end of the school year have to be discarded.

 

Mrs. Knauss must have written instructions from the physician in order to administer prescription medications. Loudoun County Public Schools have a special "Medication Form" which should be used. Copies of the form are also available in the school office and through the LCPS website.

 

All prescription medicine must be in the original pharmacy bottle with the proper label containing the student's name, medication, dosage, and instructions for administration. If you ask, the pharmacy will give you an extra bottle with the proper amount of medicine for school.

 

If Mrs. Knauss needs to give non-prescription medicine (like cough drops, eye drops, OTC allergy medications)

    • it must be in an original package with the name of the medicine and instructions
    • she must have a note from the parent regarding when and how much medicine to administer
    • she will only give the amount listed on the package for your child's age and weight and for the recommended length of time the student should receive the medicine unless she has doctor's orders on a medication form to direct differently
    • she cannot administer medicine that is not in its original container

       

Be sure to keep the "Emergency Information" up-to-date so that we can reach you if your child is ill or injured.

 

 

All 3rd graders and students new to Loudoun County Public Schools will be screened for vision and hearing during the first two months of school. Kindergarten students who did not have distance vision screening or hearing tests with audiometers reported on their School Entrance Physical Examination form will also be screened.
