The parent/guardian must complete appropriate paperwork with the school nurse IN ADVANCE of the student carrying these items.
No student is allowed to carry any kind of medication to or from school. If a student needs to have medication during school hours, a parent/guardian will need to bring the medication to the school clinic and complete the appropriated paperwork. Any changes in medication must be in writing and brought to the clinic. This includes any over the counter medications (Tylenol, Advil) cough drops, antacids, etc. Students are allowed to carry inhalers with a doctor's authorization.
