Medications

If your child needs to take medication at school (daily medication OR medication "as needed") there is a form that must be filled out and signed by you and your pediatrician. All medicine must be dispensed by the nurse at school. Please do NOT send medication to school with children in their backpacks! If a child is starting a new medication, please give the first 2 doses at home to make sure the child does not experience any unusual side effects or reactions. The weekend is a good time to start new meds.
