Parents with children who require medicine during the school day must contact the school office. Written instruction for dispensing the medicine to the student should be given to the principal. Prescription medications MUST be in the original container and brought to school by an adult. (NOTE: when the prescription is filled, the pharmacy will usually give an extra bottle, one for home and one for school if requested) Medicine will then be given to the student as per parent’s instructions.
Over the counter medications may be given with parent’s permission only. The school has a supply of Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Advil, Aleve, Benadryl, Triaminic, cough drops, eye drops, and antacids, so these do not need to be brought to school. Any other medications that you wish for your child to take occasionally should be sent in the original containers along with a signed note from the parent/guardian that the child needs to take this drug (include the dosage) during school. The Student Health Inventory form MUST be signed and returned each school year before any medications can be given.
