Our clinic staff will administer minor first aid, prescription drugs, and long-term medication. Over the counter medication will be administered only when a parent request is furnished in writing for a specific reason and day. When parents bring medications to school, detailed instructions should be provided on the school form along with the medication in the original container. Should your child require long term medication, several weeks to indefinite in length, our clinic staff will dispense medication only after your doctor has written specific instructions that include exact dosage to be given. We also require documention to administer medication for specific known medical problems (e.g. severe allergies).
No prescription or over-the-counter medications (Tylenol, aspirin, Pepto Bismol, etc.) should be sent to school with students. Parents must hand deliver medications to the clinic. According to school bus rules, students are not permitted to have tobacco, alcohol, or any controlled substances (Ritalin, Adderall, etc.) on the bus. The safety of your child as well as other children is the primary consideration behind this rule.
The clinic depends on your donations for supplies for the clinic such as band-aids, first-aid ointment, zip-lock sandwich bags, thermometer covers, and tissues. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
