  • Medication Policy Reminder

    By in Announcements on

    This is a reminder that as per district guidelines, over-the-counter medications such as Ibuprofen and Tylenol are not routinely stocked in the nurse’s office. Medication can only be dispensed with permission from the parent or guardian, as well as authorization from a prescriptive authority, such as an MD, NP, or PA.

    This means that if there is a likelihood that your child may need to have access to medication during the school year for recurring issues – such as headaches, menstrual cramps, musculoskeletal pain, a sports injury, or seasonal allergies – please have your student come to the nurse’s office to request a medication authorization. After receiving this authorization, signed by both your student’s guardian and their primary care provider, the student may bring that specific medication to be stored in the nurse’s office and given to them as needed throughout the school year.

    Students may not self-carry either over the counter or prescription medications* on campus, due to the risk of allergic and adverse reactions should these medications be taken by students for whom they were not intended. Exceptions are made for emergency prescription medications such as Epi-pens and inhalers.
