From the School Nurse
Important reminders for cold/flu season from the nurse- It's not too late to get your flu shot as flu cases in Maryland increase. It takes two weeks after the shot to develop immunity so get it now! Also the nurse cannot give a student cough drops, throat lozenges or other over the counter medication without the  Over the Counter Medication form  being on file for the student. The form is completed by the parent and signed by the doctor. Here is a link for the form: Over the Counter Medication Form.  It is also on the Concordia Prep website.
