Medication Policy

NYS law prohibits school nurses from dispensing, without written permission, any drugs or over-the-counter medications.

If your child is under a physician’s prescription to take medicine, please bring the medication, along with the prescription label, to the school nurse. The same procedure applies to aspirin, Tylenol, cold remedies and all other over-the-counter medicines.

If you wish to have your child take over-the-counter medication while in school, please bring the medicine to the school nurse.
