Student Medications

Any students with medication kept in the nurse's office must have a parent come into the Nurse's office on the last day of school to pick up medication. No medication will be kept in the office over the summer. All medication will be disposed of on the last day of school.

If your child will need medication for the 2019-20 school year, new orders are required and medication will need to be dropped off at the start of the new school year. Please check the website for the necessary medication form that needs to be completed by your child's physician.
