Highlights of changes include:
- The administration of over-the-counter medication by the school nurse will now require the written permission of BOTH the parent and the doctor. (Previously the doctor’s permission was only required for prescription medication).
- Students in grades 7 through 12 will now be allowed to self-carry and self-administer over-the-counter pain relief medication with parent permission.
See Medications at School section for specifics and forms.
