The nurse is not permitted to hand out medications to students, unless medication and consent have been provided by parents. The nurse does not stock community cough drops, tums, ibuprofen, acetaminophen or diphenhydramine. Please note that this is different from last year, and is a new policy. If any student has a need for medication, it must come from their household and given to the nurse along with a consent form from parents. Once this is received, the nurse can store and distribute as necessary.
If you have any questions regarding these policies, please contact our school nurse, Courtney Jennings-Sood.
