From the School Nurse
Reminder regarding cough drops and other Over the Counter Medications (OTC) from the nurse: With the cold and flu season upon us, be aware the nurse is not allowed to give students cough drops or other OTC medications without the Over the Counter Medication Authorization Form being turned in with the doctor and the parent’s signature. The form is available on the website or from the nurse. A new form needs to be turned in for each school year. Students are not to have any medications in their locker or in their bag unless the doctor has written for them to carry emergency medication (inhaler or EpiPen). For questions contact Ellen Marquardt at 410-825-2323 Ext 244 or at ellenmarquardt@concordiaprepschool.org .
