Important Medication Information
We are always looking out for the safety and best interest of your student.
  • Medications must be delivered to the school by the parent or legal guardian in the original prescription container, with the pharmacist’s label attached. If the medicine is an over-the-counter medication, it must be unopened and in its original packaging.
  • Students are NEVER permitted to carry any medications other than prescribed emergency medications, cleared by parents and school nurse (Inhalers for asthma and Epi-pens for allergic reactions).
  • Students are NEVER permitted to return to school on narcotic medication for pain management. These medications may cause dizziness, light-headedness, sedation as well as other symptoms which make it unsafe for them to be in school. If the pain is severe enough to require a narcotic, the student should not be in school.
  • Any change in dosage of a prescription medication must be authorized in writing by the prescribing physician.

If you have questions, contact Mrs. Stacey Slack, RN at 301-735-8401 Ext. 160.
