Stock (over the counter) Medication
As a courtesy to our parents/guardians, we have Stock (over the counter) medications available to be administered to our Middle School and High School students ONLY during the school day with parent/guardian consent. This form is included in online registration, but also available here.

The medications available are in tablet form only, and include the following:

  • Tylenol (Acetaminophen)
  • Extra Strength Tylenol (Acetaminophen)
  • Advil (Ibuprofen)
  • Tums (Calcium Carbonate)
  • Benadryl (Diphenhydramine) -- for this medication only, the parent/guardian will be notified prior to administration and the child will be sent home due to side effects of the medications. 

Please note, this form is OPTIONAL, and can be changed at any time by notifying the school nurse.
