Thank you for visiting
Fruit Cove Middle School’s Health Clinic page!
The Tdap immunization shot is required for all 7th graders and must be recorded on a Florida 680 form. As soon as your student receives this shot, the form can be brought to the front office, faxed (904-547-7885) or emailed to Marjorie Connolly even if the student is still in 6th grade.
You must have an authorization form completed for any meds (prescription or non-prescription)
Please be aware of this district policy:
NO ONE CAN PICK UP OR GIVE ANYTHING TO YOUR CHILD UNLESS THEY ARE ON THE DESIGNATED EMERGENCY CONTACT LIST.
Please review your list and make any additions/changes necessary. This is for the safety of your child. You may email this information to Marjorie Connolly with a copy of your (guardians) drivers license and we will update this information. Please provide the names and phone numbers of the contacts.
COVID Parent Guidance 2022-23 School Year
There is no longer a dedicated district Covid hotline. All COVID related questions or concerns should be discussed with your child’s pediatrician for guidance and recommendations.
Should the pediatrician recommend your child stay home from school, please notify your child’s teacher(s) of their upcoming absence. Upon return to school, a parent or doctor’s note must be provided to excuse the absence.
You do NOT need to call the school to report Covid and no contact tracing will be done at the school.
When your child is sick
Keep your children at home for rest and treatment if they have:
- Fever greater than 100 degrees
- General tiredness or not feeling good
- Frequent congested (wet) or croup-sounding cough
- Lots of nasal congestion with frequent blowing of nose
Stomach symptoms are not a part of cold or flu symptoms
but for good health sake follow these guidelines for staying home and preventing spread of disease:
- Vomiting (even just once)
A child should be physically able to participate in all school activities when returning to school.
- Keeping a sick child at home will help reduce the spread of colds and flu in the classroom.
- It is a very long day for a child who is sent to school sick.
