The Crisp County School System has a school system nurse, Mrs. Jennifer Griggs, that works in each school to support student success. She supports the physical health of our students along with providing educational support.
All prescription and non-prescription drugs must be properly labeled with instructions for use and must be in the original container. No medication will be given to students without prior parental consent. All medication should be turned into the clinic upon arrival to school. No medication will be dispensed in the classroom. Please note that the clinic will no longer provide Tylenol or other types of medication. Parents must provide the necessary medication for their child. Also note that the school nurse is required to follow the directions listed on the medicine container.
Please make sure to provide the school nurse with an inhaler if your child has been diagnosed with asthma and provided one by your family doctor. We strongly recommend that we have an available inhaler even if your child has not had an attack in some time. We CANNOT allow your child to use another person’s inhaler even in the case of an emergency. PLEASE make sure we have one in our nurse’s office.
Please contact Mrs. Griggs with any questions about school related health.
Great News!!! Crisp County School System has partnered with Crisp Regional Healthcare Services to offer a School Based Health Center (clinic) at Crisp County Primary School. The clinic is a comprehensive Primary Care site which includes the following services when signing the consent form.
A SIGNED CONSENT WILL ALLOW YOUR CHILD:
To receive Tylenol for pain and other medications/treatments.
Treatment for illness (Strep Throat, ear infections, pink eye, influenza, ringworms) or injuries (scrapes, strains, and cuts).
Treatments for asthma attacks, etc.
Treatment for chronic conditions such as diabetes, ADHD, and asthma.
Receive Well Child Checks (including immunizations, hearing and vision screenings).
Receive routine School and Sports Physicals.
Receive counseling regarding nutrition and mental health.
Receive lab tests and other health-related issues.
The clinic is a part of several insurance plans including the Medicaid system which includes WellCare, PeachState, CareSource, Amerigroup, and PeachCare for kids. The clinic will also accept private insurance as well. Please be sure to fill in each child's name and complete all information on the forms found on the side of this page. Signing the consent form does not change your child's doctor, but it allows the child to be seen at our School Based Health Center and if your child does not have a doctor, we would love to make this your child's primary care home. If you do not have Medicaid or any type of insurance, please give us a call. You may be eligible for free or low-cost insurance offered through the State of Georgia.
Your child(ren) cannot be seen without a signed consent form. Please fill out your form and return it today. If your child has a primary care provider (PCP), please feel free to discuss with his/her provider your child's use of the School Based Health Center. We encourage you to use the School Based Health Center to address any of the issues your child may have in the future.
