  Medication Guidelines  
 
  • No medication will be given to a child and no medication can be taken by a child without written orders from a physician. This includes over the counter medications, such as aspirin and Tylenol.
  • Children are not allowed to carry medication of any kind.  All medications must be hand delivered by a parent/guardian or a designated adult to the school nurse. 
  • The medications must be in the properly labeled pharmacy container or its original container in case of non-prescription medications.
  • The nurse must have a parental consent form and a physician’s order form completed in order to dispense medication. 
  • Our school nurse, Mrs. Sharon Gaydou, R.N., will be glad to answer any of your questions.
  • Kindly inform the school office of any changes to your address and telephone numbers.  In an event of an emergency, it is important that we have up-to-date information readily available.
