School personnel are not allowed to give over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol, aspirin, cough syrup, etc. If prescription medication is to be given during school hours, a form issued by the Board of Education must be filled out and signed by both the parent/guardian and the doctor before school personnel may dispense the medication. Board policy does not allow students to keep any unauthorized medication at school. All medications must be kept in the school office with the appropriate signed forms. If a student is discovered to have medication in their possession without prior approval, he or she will be subject to disciplinary action.
