Medication Policy Reminders:

We are halfway through the school year and thought this was a good time to share a few medication policy reminders. 

1. If your student needs to take medication while at school they MUST have a medication consent form completed. Prescription meds require BOTH a parent/guardian AND a physician signature. Over the counter (OTC) meds require a parent/guardian signature only. No student will be administered medication without the proper consent forms.  

2. Please remember that students are NOT allowed to self carry ANY medications (prescription or OTC) per our district policy UNLESS it’s an emergency medication and we have the appropriate forms completed and signed. 

3. All medications must be stored in the office and brought to school by a parent/guardian. They must be in the original container with the appropriate label (and not expired). We will not accept any medications in baggies, envelopes, ect. 

Please contact Nurse Vander Veen with any medication or health related questions or concerns.
