What if my child needs medicine during school?

All medication requires a doctor-signed form. The school nurse cannot dispense medication, not even over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol or aspirin, without the doctor-signed permission form.


Forms for prescription medications and over-the-counter (non-prescribed) medications


If your child needs medication during the day, bring it to the attendance office by 10:30 am, along with the doctor-signed permission form.   


For students who carry an Epi-Pen, inhaler or insulin, we need this form on file: 

Epi-Pen, Inhaler and Insulin Permission Form.


Your doctor may fax the completed form back to us at 678.676.7710. Parents must supply all medication in the original container.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation.


Clinic Hours 

Clinic hours are 10 am - 3 pm and our phone number is 678.676.7707.   


Students may keep their inhalers with them, but only with the doctor-signed permission form on file.
