Medication Policy

  • All medications brought to school must be given to the nurse.



    All medications (both over the counter and prescription) to be given at school require a written prescription from your physician (in addition to the prescription bottle) and must be brought to school in the original container with only enough medication for school use.


               Additional information

                A completed medication permission form (see below) must accompany the medication.
