Please be sure to check in with the school nurse if your child has any specific health needs. Also, be sure to provide her with all necessary paperwork and doctors' orders. Please note, students may not self-administer any medication (including OTC Advil or Tylenol). The only time a student is able to self-administer medication is when a doctor writes a self-administer order for an inhaler.
