Nurse’s news


Dear Parents:

Giving any medication, prescription or over-the-counter at school without the order of a physician is prohibited by law. Students may not have medication in their possession, in backpacks, pockets, desks or lockers. If they need to carry life saving medication such as an inhaler or Epi-Pen, there is a form that must be completed by the parents and signed by the physician. Any medication to be given in school must be in the original container and must be accompanied by a signed order from a physician. Please ask at the office for a form if your child needs any medication at school.

Thank you,

Diane Stewart, RN, BS
