  •   Medication at School

    If your child needs medication at school, a “Physician’s Recommendation for Medication” form must be completed by the physician, and returned to the school.  No medication may be administered at school without this form.  An adult must bring in the forms and medication, in the original prescription labeled container, to the school beginning August 16th from 9am to 3pm.  Students with life-threatening allergy medication must have a physician completed “Life-Threatening Allergy Plan” with required medication brought in. The same procedures for student’s with Diabetic needs and medication.  The “Diabetic Management Plan” must be completed by the parent and physician and all supplies and medication should be brought in. These forms are available online at the district website under the “Health Services” tab.  Children may never have medication in their possession at school.  This includes aspirin, inhalers, cough drops, etc. Bringing in supplies and medication the week prior to school starting helps our staff to be aware and prepared of your child’s needs before the first day of school.
