Lynn Peden, School Nurse
A district form must be filled out for any medication being brought to school. (This includes cough drops.) A parent note will not be acceptable for us to give students medication. Parents must complete prescription medication form or the non-prescription medication form. The forms are available in the school nurse's office or by clicking on the links below.
- Authorization for Prescription Medication at School
- Authorization for Non-Prescription Medication at School
If your child requires medical attention for anaphylaxis or asthma, needs to undergo medical procedures, or needs to self-administer medication, these forms also need to be filled out and turned into the school nurse.
- Anaphylaxis Medication Authorization Form
- Physician and Parent School Asthma Management Plan
- Authorization for Medical Procedures at School
- Authorization for Self-Administration of Medications at School
Children must be free of fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea with no medicine for 24 hours before returning to school after an illness.
