Each student is required to have on file in the nurse’s office a permission form signed by the parent or legal guardian to take over-the-counter medication. The permission form is located on the last page of this handbook. All prescription drugs must be properly labeled with instructions for use and must be contained in the original container. Students are not permitted to have medication in their lockers or on their person. All medications must be turned in to and administered by the nurse in the nurse’s office. Students who take medication during school hours are encouraged to do so between classes.
