Medication at School

All prescription medication prescribed by your child's doctor must have a written doctor's order [consent for giving medication at school] form signed and returned to the school before that medication will be given by school personnel.  The medication must be brought to school in a properly labeled container from the pharmacy. All medication must be in the original bottle and must include the original label with child's name, Dr's name, name of prescription, dosage amount and time. Medication will not be accepted in any alternative packaging.   All medication must be carried to and from the nurse's office by a parent/guardian. This includes inhalers, prescriptions and over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol and cough drops.  State law requires all medication to be in a locked cabinet when on campus.  

Also, if your child is ill, please do not send them to school.  If your child is ill or has a fever, while at school,  you will be called to pick them up immediately. If your child has a temperature of 100.0 degrees or higher, they will be sent home from school.  If a student's temperature reaches 101.0 or greater, they need to be "TEMP. FREE" for 24 hours before they may return to school.   

Please make sure you have the Over the Counter Medication form completed in case your child is in need of Tylenol, cough drops, etc. 

Please contact the office at White Tanks Learning Center if you have any questions.
