Prescription and over the counter medications may not be administered by school staff without the written instructions of a doctor. If a child must take medications during the school day the following procedures must be followed:

  1. The medications must be in the original container.
  2. The medications must be given to the teacher and must be held by the teacher during the day including extra curricular activities.
  3. A doctor’s note with instructions for dosage and signature of the doctor must accompany the medications.
  4. The school requests a waiver signed by parents/legal guardians accompanied the medications.

No child may have medications in their bags, lunch kits or pockets during the school day.

Medications which are for Medical Alert conditions or on-going medical conditions require forms to be completed by both parents and doctors. These forms are available from the school office.
