Each student should complete a Medical/Medication Authorization and Release Form (Student Health Record Form) during the first week of school each year. This form should be signed by a parent and returned to the student’s mentorship teacher. This form is then filed with the school nurse and the Attendance Office for referral when the student needs to check out of school during the day or if a medical emergency arises during the school day. Only those persons indicated on the form may be allowed to check out a student. The form must be signed by the student’s parent/guardian.
Teachers and school staff are not allowed to administer medicine to students. Parents need to contact the school nurse about prescribed medication a student needs to take during school hours. All medication must be in the original container. Over the counter medications provided to the school must be in the original container, unopened, and sealed.
