When Filling Your Child's Prescriptions for School

When supplying prescriptions to the school, we must have the medication in the bottle as it came from the pharmacy.  If you need to keep medication at home, please put the home supply in a separate bottle so that school can have the current prescription bottle.  These are rules stipulated in the law for medication in school.

Physician's Statement of Exam

A Physician's Statement is a requirement for preschool attendance. There must be a new form on file every 13 months.
This is very helpful to provide information to school staff on your child's health.
