Policy Change:  Over the Counter Medicines

 

 

 

In order to come into compliance with the dispensing of OTC, such as ibuprofen, Tylenol, and other medicines that are purchased without a prescription from a physician, a change in the policy and procedures will be implemented in U-High effective February 1, 2003.  If a parent wants their son/daughter to receive any medication, the following procedure will be required:  A permission form will have to be on file in the nurse’s office granting permission that is signed by the parent AND physician.  In addition, the parent will have to supply the medication in the original bottle with the students name clearly marked.

 

Therefore, effective February 1, 2003, University High School will not purchase, supply, or dispense any medication to students without following the above procedures.
