Thank you for supporting The Denver Public Schools medication policy. Please make
arrangements with the school nurse to pick up all medications used by your child during
the school year. Colorado Guidelines state that medications are not permitted to be
sent home with your child. If your child is participating in a summer program, their
medication will not automatically be transferred to the site of the program. It is up to the
parent/guardian to pick up the medication from the school and transport it to the
summer program site.
*IF ARRANGEMENTS HAVE NOT BEEN MADE FOR MEDICATION PICK-UP, REMAINING MEDICATIONS WILL BE DESTROYED ON: END OF DAY JUNE 3RD 2022*
Enclosed is the Denver Public Schools (DPS) Medication Release form for the next
school year. The DPS medication release form must be completed by both a
parent/guardian and physician in order for ANY medication (including any over the
counter medications) to be given next school year.
Please remember that all prescription medications must be in a labeled pharmacy
container. All over-the-counter medications must be in the original package and labeled
with the student’s name and dosage information.
It has been a pleasure to work with you and your child this school year and I look
forward to next year. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Should you have any
questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 720-424-6076.
I will be available for medication pick up May 31st-June 2nd 9am-4pm, and June 3rd 9am-1230pm. If these dates do not work for
you, please contact me to make arrangements.
