Can a student carry over the counter medications (OTC) in their backpack/lunchbox/purse?

High school students are allowed to carry certain medications with them during the school day, field trips, or other school related activities. Medications that are allowed are: Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, Antacids, Cough or throat lozenges, Midol, and Oral Antihistamines. Meds should be in their original container/blister pack and should not be expired.

What is required to leave OTC meds in the clinic to be taken “as needed” ?

If you would like the clinic to hold your child's non-prescription meds please fill out the SHS-1 form (Authorization to dispense meds) with your signature and the "non-prescription" part of the form filled out. Again, meds should be in their original container/blister pack and not be expired.

What if my child requires antibiotics or other short-term prescription medications?

The SHS-1 form will need to be filled out by both the parent and the prescribing physician. Medicine should be brought to clinic in the original container. Please make sure the doctor has written frequency and dosage instructions on the form.
