Medical Alert Notification

In order to best meet your child’s health and educational needs in school please inform the school nurse of any health related issues or any current medications.  The school staff working with your child will be notified in a confidential manner and adequate allowances will be made.

It is very important that the school be notified of any change in emergency numbers.

Medication Administration in School                       

Every effort should be made to have any medications given at home.  If this is not possible, remember that ALL medications, including non-prescription medications (Tylenol and Advil), require written authorization from a doctor and parent.  State law and regulations pertaining to administration of medications in school requires an Authorization Of  Medication By School Personnel form to be completed by a doctor, dentist, or an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse. The form must also be signed by a parent/guardian. Medication must be brought to the nurse in the original labeled container with no more than a 45 day supply.  Students may carry some of their own medications per State of Connecticut guidelines with the completed Authorization for Self Administration portion of the form.
