Parents of students who have medication stored in the health room should pick it up by the last day of school, June 26. All medication (pills, epi-pens, inhalers, etc.) not picked up will be discarded. Please plan ahead to pick medication up so it is not wasted! Medication may not be carried home by the student. Medication must be retrieved by a parent. School nurses will not be available after June 26 to return medication to families.
All medication orders expire at the end of the school year. If you are visiting your child’s health care provider during the summer, consider requesting a new medication order for the school nurse. All medication, prescription or over-the-counter, requires an order. The Medication Permission Form and the Medication Policy are both available online at http://newtonma.gov/gov/health/school.asp.
