Medication at School

Whenever possible, medications should be given at home.

Students should not be carrying medicines with them at school.

For students requiring medicine at school, medications require a completed form before these medications will be administered. Medication will only be administered in dosages appropriate for age and weight as per manufacturer label.

Students needing Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Cough Drops, or other medications routinely will need to provide their own medication to be kept in the nurse's office.
All medications must be in the original container.

No stock medications will be kept in the nurses' offices.

For students in grades 9-12, over the counter medications may be sent home with the student with written permission from the parent/guardian. Controlled and prescription medications must be picked up by the parent/guardian.

All medications left at the school after the last day will be disposed of unless prior arrangements have been made with the nurse.
