A note from Nurse Lindsey regarding administering medication at school.

Parents,

Good evening!  I am looking forward to seeing all these precious students back in the building soon. I wanted to remind you of the medication administration policy for school.

Per district policy, when possible, medications should be given by parents/guardians at home before or after school hours. When medications need to be given at school, please follow the following procedure.

All medications need to be brought to the health room by a parent/guardian along with the district permission form. This form is attached and may also be found on the district web page under "I am a Parent/Guardian" and then the health tab. All forms must be signed by a parent, and prescriptions must also be signed by a physician. Please understand that we cannot accept prescription medications without the accompanying completed permission form. Medications must be in their original container and need to be current (not expired). Prescriptions need to have the prescription label attached. Over the counter medications need to have appropriate age/weight information on the label and in a new container.

Thank you for helping us take good care of your child! Please contact the health room with any questions or concerns.

Please feel free to bring medications to school to drop off at the Meet and Greet on Aug. 12 or Monday Aug.16. At this time, I will only be accepting medications on the first day of school by appointment only.

See you soon Rangers,

Nurse Lindsey
