Over the counter drugs may be brought to school by the student on the school bus provided that upon arrival at school the over the counter medication is immediately delivered to the school nurse.All over the counter medication must be in the original container with administering directions from the parent with a signature.
Illness & Communicable Diseases

If you find head lice or nits in your child’s hair contact your physician, pharmacist or school nurse for the proper treatment instructions. A student must be cleared by the school nurse before returning to class or riding the bus.
