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 theses 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 medications such as ibuprofen, but again, we require proper paperwork in place to allow this. Students may not carry any controlled substances.
