Any medication administered at school must be accompanied by a medication form, which has been completely filled out by the parent or the doctor. Forms are available in the school office and also may be downloaded from the school webpage. If a student is taking any medication, a note from the parent must be on file. Medications will be kept in the clinic. The nurse’s hours are 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM.
Prescription Medicines- All prescription medicines must be in the original container with prescription, pharmacy, doctor and dosages clearly printed on the bottle. We are not allowed to administer any medication without proper directions and procedure. Please encourage your physician to set the medication schedule at times that will enable you to administer medication before or after school. Medication that does not require refrigeration will also help.
Tylenol, Aspirin, Motrin, and Other -Over-the-counter medications (OTC) can be administered to your child only if it has been sent from home in the original unopened container along with a completed school medication form. Medication forms are available from the office or the clinic. OTCs must be kept in the clinic and will be administered by office personnel or the nurse only. Cough drops are considered an OTC medication. Students who are ill, contagious, or have a fever must stay home so they can get well and not infect other students. Students should be fever-free without medication for 24 hours prior to returning to school.
