Your student's health and safety are important to us. Please review these details regarding our medical policies and procedures.

Medication Information

The school nurse or authorized personnel must administer all medications, both over-the-counter and prescribed. Please bring all medications to the school office. The school does not supply medications for students. In addition, the school nurse needs a parent or guardian signature before administering any medication.

  • Over-the-counter medication: Parents must supply over-the-counter medications such as aspirin, cough lozenges, etc. for their own students to the school in the original container. Please mark the student’s name clearly on the top of the bottle or package.
  • Prescribed medication: Prescription medication must be in the original container in which it was purchased. Name of medication, dosage, time to be given, student name, and physician name must be printed on the container.
  • Prescribed treatment: Treatments should be described on a written prescription form from the physician.
