Medications given at school require permission forms and original containers. Please, pay special attention to age-appropriate medications. Adult medications cannot be given to children without a doctor’s order. It is also important to carefully check expiration dates on all medications. Each child must have his own medications and forms filled out. The medications are filed and locked up in the clinic.
