If your child requires medication (prescription or over the counter) during the 2023-2024 school year, your child’s health care provider must complete a medication form and/or an Epi-Pen Care form. All prescribed medications must be in properly labeled containers that include the following information:

  • Student name 
  • Medication name 
  • Dose to be given 
  • Time & Frequency of medication 
  • Prescriber’s name & signature 
  • Date of medication order

Pharmacy labels will usually contain this information.  Over-the-counter medications should be in new, unopened containers labeled with the student’s name. 


Please keep sick children at home...

  • Temperature of 100 degrees or higher
  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Sore Throat
  • Body Aches
  • Abdominal Cramps
