Students must take all medications in the health office under the supervision of an approved staff member. If a student needs to take medication while on campus, the student’s doctor and parent/guardian must complete a medication authorization form. Medication must be in your child's original, labeled pharmacy container written in English.
For over-the-counter medications, the authorization form is still required, signed by the student’s doctor, and authorized by the parent. The parent must provide the over-the-counter medicine in an original unopened container to the health office.
It is not recommended that students carry medicine on them while on campus but they may self-carry emergency medications if the M.D. designates this on the authorization form. If a student brings a medication on campus without the appropriate form on file, he/she may be at risk of suspension.
Physical Education Restriction/Releases
If a student is unable to participate in Physical Education because of a medical reason, you must bring a note from the doctor indicating the activity limitations. Download the form below and have your student’s doctor complete it and return it to the Health Office:
