Meghan Bennett - School Nurse

meghan.bennett@bedford.k12.va.us



Hello and welcome to a new school year here at FMS! 
As your School Nurse, I am here to assist you with any health concerns you may have regarding your child.  Please come to the clinic to pick up Health Care Plans or medication forms that your child will need during the school year.  Please remember that ALL medication administered at school must have the appropriate Bedford County medication permission form in the FMS clinic.  

With the return of students to school comes the concern for the spread of germs!  Encourage your child to WASH HANDS!  Sneeze or cough into sleeve. Keep your child at home if he/she has flu symptoms.  Do not return to school until fever (100F or higher) is absent without medication for 24 hrs. 

If you have any questions or concerns, contact me at 525-6630 or refer to Family Handbook.   I look forward to being a part of your child’s FMS experience. 

Helpful Information

  • All students need an Emergency Card on file - please turn these in to the student's Homebase teacher
  • Please have the appropriate medical forms on file in the clinic if your child/children have medical conditions.
  • ALL medication forms are good for one school year (including the acetaminophen and antihistamine forms)

Also, students should not call or text parent to go home.  Student should ask teacher for permission to go to the clinic to see the nurse when not feeling well.
