     Hi, welcome to the clinic!  
    My name is Vicki Barrera.  I am the school nurse at CCMS.  I am orginally from Nashville Tenn but moved to NC with my family in my teen years.  My husband retired from the Coast Guard and we have made NC our home.  I have been a nurse for 20 years and a school nurse for 8 years.  I love being a school nurse and keeping your child healthy and safe are my main priority.  
    Immunizations-All 7th grade students are required to have MCV and Tdap boosters before beginning school.  Proof of immunization 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 Fax : 453-0019.
    Health Cards-Please return health cards ASAP.   I need this information in order to provide the best care for your student.  If your student has a health condition, allergy, or medication, there are specific forms to be completed. 
    Asthmatics-need to have a new asthma action plan completed each year. Forms are available 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 physician for student to self-carry.
    Medications at school-Medications must be brought to school by a parent.  Children are not allowed to bring medications to school.  If medications need to be dispensed at school, medication permission forms must be completed and signed by physician and parent. Forms are in the handbook and in the office.  This includes over the counter medications such as tylenol and ibuprofen.
    Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I am here to keep your students safe and healthy, and need to know if your child has any special issues.
