Welcome to the Villages Charter Middle School Clinic at Buffalo Ridge. My name is Joy Shumate, RN and the students here just call me "Nurse Joy". I am available to help your child with medical concerns/illness, medication, diabetes care, and injuries during the school day. If you have any information that you feel would be important for me to know about your child, please feel free to contact me. I am here to help.
Reminders for medications:
1. A physician or qualified health care provider (HCP) must order ALL medication - over the counter and prescription. No medication will be given without the proper documentation from the physician or HCP. All clinic forms are available online below.
2. All prescription medication must be brought to the clinic in the original pharmacy labeled bottle. Over the counter medication that will be kept in the clinic must be brought to the clinic in a new, unopened package and labeled with your child's name and date of birth. Medications must be brought to the clinic by the parent. Students are NOT allowed to bring the medication to the clinic.
3. If proper paperwork is not available on the first day of school and your child needs medication, you are welcome to come at the dosage time and give your child the medication.
4. As always, if you have questions please feel free to call me or send an email and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Medication rules are all about safety for the students and are set forth by the State of Florida Health Department and the Sumter County Health Department.
Law effective July 1, 2022!
As part of the Parents' Right Act, all students must have a signed (electronic signature) Health Services Consent form in order to be seen or receive any medical care. If your child does not have a signed Health Services Consent form, you will be contacted to pick up your child if he/she is sick or injured. The form is on your Skyward- Follow these instructions:
Sign into Skyward, click on "Online Registration", click on your child's name. You will see a list of forms. Forms that have been completed will have a green checkmark beside them. The Health Services Consent and Medicaid form is near the bottom of the list. You must complete a form for each child attending school. If you have any questions, please call the clinic for help.
