If your child needs medication in school…


In an effort to eliminate self-medication by students and thus prevent needless accidents, which might be caused by misuse of any medicine or drug, please follow the following New York State Education law requirements when it is necessary for your child to receive medication during school hours.

  • A signed note from the child's physician.
  • The medication in the original labeled container.
  • A note from the parent giving permission for the child to take the medication during the school day.

The above guidelines apply to all prescription and over-the-counter medications.

A responsible adult must bring medication to school.

Form is available in the Health Office or you can download them from website.
