    Welcome back, Tiger Nation, to another great year in the AGW Clinic.

    General Information

    ATTENTION: Current 6th graders 2023-2024 if you have already received the state-mandated vaccines (Tdap & Meningococcal ACWY) for the 7th grade 2024-25, please send a copy to the school nurse. HPV is also highly recommended. Parent/Guardian please help our school stay in compliance by providing any updated vaccines to the school clinic. Students entering 7th grade require current state mandated immunizations documentation on file including Meningococcal ACWY, Tdap. HPV is also a required discussion with your health care provider.

    Current 7th graders and new students to Stafford County Public Schools will be receiving state mandated vision and hearing screenings.

    Immunization requirements;

    Code of Virginia: § 22.1-271.2.

    Because we are a school that promotes hygiene for a healthy and positive learning environment:

    • Wash hands frequently (the most important!!)
    • Avoid touching the face, especially the eyes and nose
    • A nutritious diet with lots of liquids
    • Plenty of sleep and rest to help the body boost the immune system and ward off diseases
    • Over the counter fever reduction medications and/or decongestants, but if taking  prescription medication, speak with your doctor prior to taking
    • Cover the nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing-(try coughing into the bend of the elbow instead of the hands!)

    The symptoms of cold and flu usually last about 5-7 days.  A student who is ill needs to be kept at home both for their own benefit and for the benefit of other students and staff.  A student needs to be free of symptoms   (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) for at least 24 hours before returning to school.  Thank you for following these guidelines. You will be doing your child a favor.   Healthy students are able to concentrate and put forth their best effort.

    Parents health services forms e.g. anaphylaxis(allergy), diabetes, seizure, daily medication or medication administered occasionally) that is needed can be downloaded or forwarded to your health care provider by visiting the Stafford Schools Health Services webpage. Please make sure I have a current copy on file in the clinic. Because your student is growing, Stafford Schools requires these completed forms annually.
