Administration of Medication

Students in Pre-K and Kindergarten will be administered over the counter medication with written parental permission.  The permission and medications available are listed on the back of the emergency card.  Tylenol will only be given after all palliative measures have been tried.  If a student requests Tylenol more than three times in a month, a parent/guardian will be notified and requested to seek further medical consultation. 

Students are not allowed to carry their own medication to and from school.  A parent/guardian or a responsible adult must bring the medication in its original pharmacy labeled container to your child’s nurse. *(The exception for students not carrying medications is Epi-pens and inhalers (if parent and nurse agree)*
