Per state law, any child may carry and administer emergency, life-saving medications. This typically includes albuterol inhalers (for asthmatics) and epinephrine auto-injectors (for severe allergic reactions). At the elementary level, we encourage students to leave these medications with the nurse or have them strategically located throughout the building. As students mature, we do encourage them to begin to carry their medication. Please check with your school nurse for requirements to do so.
High school students may also carry medication such as ibuprofen, but again, we require proper paperwork in place to allow this. Students may not carry any controlled substances.
