Medication Information

News from the Nurse . . .
Attention Parents:  

If your child will need to take medication at school, the district medication policy must be followed. Medications should be in the original container with the student's name and instructions for administration on the label. A medication permission form must be completed by the parent and signed by the child's doctor in order for any medication to be given at school. These forms are available in the health room. 

Again, all medications must be in the original container.

All student medications are kept and administered in the health room, unless specified in writing by a physician and the parent after talking with the nurse. Medicines should be brought straight to the health room upon arrival to school.  

Thank you for your cooperation!
