No over the counter medications may be carried by any student at school or during school activities. Please know that we have Tylenol/Acetaminophen, Motrin/Ibuprofen, Benadryl/Diphenhydramine, Aleve/Naproxen, and Tums/Calcium Carbonate in the nurses clinic. Should you want your student to have these available during the school day for the nurse to administer you must give permission to treat as well as acknowledge yes/no to the permissions in the Renweb family portal. You may also complete the Medical Information Sheet available at the Back to School event or anytime from the Nurses’ office.
(ie. cough drops, essential oils, etc.) will not be given at school according to state law. In compliance with nursing regulations, school nurses should not administer ORAL herbal supplements to students at school. Students will not be allowed to carry them on their person either. Not administering a product in school does not prevent parents from administering it at home or coming to school to administer it themselves.
This is for students that require the nurse to administer medication daily during the school day for 15 or more days.
This is for students needing to carry emergency meds (ie: epinephrine, inhalers, diabetes medications or other emergency time sensitive medications). Students may not carry any other medications!
This will also include items such as Lactaid for dietary restrictions. We complete the form with families so that students are aware of safety responsibilities around carrying medications. These responsibilities include having original containers, the appropriate times to take medicines, and the requirement to not share with anyone.
This is for field trips that students will require to take their medications to (ie: Outdoor Ed, Fall retreats, day hikes, etc.). Please have these completed and turned in at least 48 hours before the trip. This is in addition to the field trip permission slip provided by the teacher.
