Chesapeake High has both a traditional health suite staffed by a registered nurse, certified health assistant and a wellness center, which is in operation two days a week. The nurse practitioner in the Wellness Center provides physical exams, treats acute illnesses, administers immunizations, and co-manages chronic health problems with your child’s health provider. Parental consent is required for your student to receive health care from the Wellness Center.

Required Discretionary Medication Form – Required Every Year for All Students

A new “Consent for Administration of Approved Discretionary Medications and Health Contact Information” form must be completed for each student every school year. This form authorizes your child to receive over the counter medication including Tylenol, Benadryl, Ibuprofen, Tums, and cough drops. Forms are sent home the first day of school and must be returned to the Health Suite as soon as possible.  Forms are available online at www.bcps.org/offices/sss/health/pdf/BEBCO-0881-Consent-for-Admin-of-Approved-Disc-Meds.pdf

Prescription Medication Form if applicable

A “Parent’s Request to Administer Medication in School” form completed and signed by your child’s doctor is required for your child to receive “prescription” medications during school hours (including Epi-Pens and inhalers). Medications must be in original pharmacy container with student name and medication label from pharmacy attached. Please call Mrs. Baumgardner on August 30th at 443-809-0070, to schedule an appointment to drop off your child’s prescription medications and the required form, completed by your child’s doctor.
