My name is Vicki Barrera. The staff and students call me Nurse Vicki. I love being a school nurse. Keeping your child healthly and safe are my main priority.
Immunizations: All 7th grade students are required by law to have their MCV and Tdap boosters before beginning of school. Proof of immunizations must be provided within the first 30 days of school. Please contact your physician or the Currituck County Health Department to schedule your necessary immunizations. Documentation should be turned into school or faxed to 252-435-2576.
Health Cards: Please return the health cards ASAP even if you have already put this information into PowerSchool. I need this information in order to provide the best care for your student. If your student has a health condition such as asthma, allergy or needs to take medication at school there are specific forms to be completed.
Asthmatics need to have a new asthma action plan completed each year. Forms are availabe in the office and at your physician's office. In middle school, many students will carry their inhaler with them and also have a spare in the clinic. We must have permission from the physician for students to self carry.
Medications at school: Medications must be brought to school by a parent. Students are not allowed to bring medications to school. If medications need to be given while at school, medication permission forms must be completed and signed by a physician and parent. Forms are in the office and on the Currituck County School's website. This includes over the counter medications such as tylenol and ibuprofen.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Please let me know if your child has any special needs that I need to be award of.
