Medication Information:

Parents must bring clearly marked prescriptions to school where they will be administered as prescribed during the school day. Nonprescription medicine, such as Tylenol, antacids, and cough drops, in a new, unopened container may also be brought to the clinic clearly marked with your child's name and permission to administer as needed. Any medication which requires a doctor's prescription must be brought into the clinic during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. An original doctor's note is required and all medication must be in a current prescription pill container. You may find the medication request form online at the CCPS Student Health and Safety website. These forms are also available in the clinic. Please do not send medication to school with your child.

Students are NOT allowed to transport medication to and from school, and may not be in possession of medication while at school without approval by the nurse or an administrator.
