From the Nurse...
Medications in School     A doctor's order is needed for the nurse to dispense prescription and over the counter medications , which include herbal and dietary supplements, vitamins, natural remedies and homeopathic medicines.
  • The District Medication Policy #5406 prohibits students from carrying medications (defined above) to and from school. A parent or guardian must deliver it to school.
  • The medication policy requires that a new doctor's order be written each school year. Nurses cannot use orders from the previous school year
  • Inhalers and EPIPENS are considered emergency medications. Students may self carry these meds if a physician's order form is on file in the nurse's office. A new doctor's order is required for self-carry medications every school year.
Link here to "Medications is School" on TEMS website.

Emergency Cards- The green Emergency Medical Information Card was mailed home with your student's schedule. It is most important for the school nurse to have a card on file for each student. Please return the completed card to school as soon as possible. Remember to fill out both sides of the card.  If there are any changes in emergency information during the school year, please call the nurse with an update. All this information and more can be found on the TEMS website under " Student Health Services."
