If your child will be taking any prescription medications at school please have the form filled out and signed by your child’s doctor. You can click on nurse forms link at bottom of page to find this form. Please also complete and sign the bottom portion of the form before turning in to the Nurse’s Office. All prescription medications must have a current label from a pharmacy on the medication (no samples will be given). The label must also be in your child’s name and have dispensing directions that match what the doctor fills out on the form. We will not be able to alter any medication instructions. If your child’s dispensing directions change during the year, a new form will need to be completed.
