Does Your Child Take Medications?
If your child regularly uses prescription or non prescription medications, you will need take action to make sure you child has access to those medications at Cispus. 

Doctor's Note: No matter whether the medication is prescription or over the counter, you will need to have a doctors note for the medication to be used st Cispus. 

Prescriptions: It is best if you can get a fresh prescription to send to Cispus. See the "Making Sense of Meds" handout below for details. If you can arrange for this during the summer it can take some of the stress out of the start of the school year. 

Over the Counter Medications: These still require a signed doctor's note. It is necessary to send a new, unopened container of whatever medication is needed. A good guideline to use is send this type of medication only if your child has used it in the last three months.  Unnecessary medications slow the check in process and generate a lot of extra work for our school and volunteer staff.

For any outdoor school related question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact Director Warren Westerberg 263-2136, ext. 451 or warren.westerberg@lacenterschools.org Thank you!
