Prescription medications

    If students are to take a prescribed medication at school, the school nurse must have a written note from the prescribing physician. In addition, the medication must arrive at school in the proper prescription bottle with the child's name, doctor's name, date, medication and dose.


    Over-the-counter medications

    For over-the-counter medications, the nurse must have a signed note from a parent and the medication must be in its original container. OTC medications will be given only for what they are intended and within the normal dose.
