Hello J.B. Edwards Elementary Families!
I am excited about introducing myself as your School Nurse this year! My name is Nancy O’Donoghue and you can call me Nurse Nancy.
I look forward to meeting you all and want to provide you with some important information prior to our school year beginning. Here is my contact information:
Nancy O'Donoghue RN BSN
J B Edwards Elementary
Phone- 843-856-5648 / Fax -843-277-3213
If you need to meet with me to review your student’s health care needs prior to the school year I am available by appointment Aug 12th, 15, 16th.
Please complete both sides of the School Nurse Health Information card. We are transitioning to an online format but we are not quite there yet. We need a hard copy on file to reference in case of power outages or internet outages.
* Pay special attention to the part that allows me to give over the counter medications
* List all health concerns.
* Be specific about who can pick up your child if you are unavailable.
* Signature is required on the form.
This is the internet link for more information about health care concerns and additional forms: https://www.ccsdschools.com/Page/1305
Here you will find the Medication/Procedure Doctors Order form for medications that need to be given during school hours and emergency medications that will be kept in the clinic.
We can not accept “ Backpack” Medications from your student. All medications need to be brought to the clinic by an adult. Please contact me if you have any questions.
Clinic hours are 7 am to 3 pm.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!
Two emergency cards go home at the beginning of the school year in the blue folder and both need to be filled out and returned as soon as possible. One card is for the front office and one is for the clinic. It is very important that all students have a School Nurse Emergency card filled out front and back in the clinic. The forms can be found here:
