From the School Nurse
Over the counter Medication form: Remember to get your child's physician to complete an   Over the Counter Medication Authorization Form  for next school year. This will allow the nurse to give your child medications for pain, cough, sore throats and skin irritation (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, cough drops, itch cream and skin care). The form is available from the nurse or on the website under "Forms and Publications". It is school policy that prescription and non prescription medications are kept in the health suite and administered by the nurse. Download the Over the Counter Medication Authorization Form

Returning students- Parents please complete the  Returning Student Medical Statement/Health Information and Emergency Contact    form for the next school year which is available on the website under "Menu" and "Middle or Upper School Parents" and "Forms and Publications". The form should be given to the nurse in August.

Remember if you have your child's physical exam done over the summer, it is good for the entire school year (all three sports seasons). The  PreParticipation Physical Evaluation Form  is also available from the nurse or on the website. For any questions contact Ellen Marquardt at 410-825-2323 Ext 244 or  ellenmarquardt@concordiaprepschool.org
