Health Room

Please remember that when planning field trips, the health room needs to know in advance to have time to prepare field trips bags and train personnel. Things to remember:

· Please notify the health room staff of any field trip at least five (5) school days in advance and provide a list of students attending to ensure appropriate medical training and appropriate medications are available to students participating in the field trip. (FCPS Regulation 400-05).

· A field trip bag with a stock EAI (epinephrine auto injector) must go on all field trips so additional training is required.

· For field trips you will receive a field trip bag with prescribed medication and a separate field trip bag with stock epinephrine. Do not combine prescribed medication with stock EAI.
