All students with specialized medical issues whether they take medication at school or not are encouraged to have forms completed by their doctor on a yearly basis so the school may remain up to date with their medical status should complications arise.
Students who take medication during school hours must have forms specific to their medical issue completed yearly and may qualify for a 504 plan to address any accommodations they may require.
Students who have a medical condition that is treated with medication at home are encouraged to have the Miscellaneous Medical Issue with No Medication Required In School completed by their doctor and turn it in to the school nurse. This is encouraged because medications students take at home can at times affect their functioning in the classroom.
