Effective with the 2014-2015, school year, the following medication guidelines are in effect:
  • For any student needing a medication during school hours,  parents/guardians must bring the medication to their child's school and hand the medication directly to the school nurse.
  • A Physician's Order is required for all over-the-counter medication and prescribed medication. The Physician's Order must be provided to the school nurse at the time of the medication drop-off.
  • No student is permitted to bring medication to school or carry medications at any time unless prescribed by a physician to self-carry (i.e. inhaler or epi-pen for 7th-12th grade students).
