Medication at School
Should your child need medication while at school, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you with this process. Please do not send medications to school with your child as students are not allowed to carry any medications (prescription or over the counter) at school, with the exception of Emergency medications, including Inhalers and Epi Pens, per School Policy.
Health Care Provider and Parent permission slips must be completed and the medication brought into school by a Parent/Guardian or designated adult. If your child has Asthma and requires an inhaler at school an Asthma Action Plan should be completed by your child's provider and sent in to me. If your child has a life threatening allergy and requires an EpiPen, an Allergy Action Plan should be completed.
Tylenol (Acetaminophen), Ibuprofen, Pepto Bismol, and Tums are kept in stock in the Nurse's office. At the start of each school year, you are given the choice to give or not give permission for these medications to be administered at school on an as needed basis.
