High School Medications Concerns

As a reminder, according to board policy R2870,  "The administration of medication, including over-the-counter medications, is a nursing activity, governed by the State of Missouri Nursing Practice Act. It must be performed by the registered professional school nurse."  No matter the medication, it has to be administered IN THE NURSE'S OFFICE. You are welcome to bring your own bottle and leave it with Nurse Amber but you are not allowed to carry your own medication with the exception of Asthma Inhalers and EpiPens. Please see Nurse Amber if you have any questions.   

Good Practice

Just as a reminder it is always good practice to wash your hands often, before and after you use the restroom or if you have to share supplies. You should also not be sharing drinks or food of any kind. Each student is encouraged to bring their own water bottle. Keep your hands away from your face as much as possible. We can all work together to keep ourselves and each other healthy
