A field trip is considered the same as a regular school day. NO student is allowed to self-carry medication with the exception of emergency medications which require an MD signature. All students needing medication, prescription or over-the-counter, daily and as needed, must have a medication form filled out for each on medication and brought to the health room for nurses' review the week before the trip, along with the medication. If it is a prescription medication the doctor has to sign the form. All medication must be in the original container, labeled with the name, only the amount required while gone and not expired. If you have any questions, call Tara or Amy at 821-0727. Our fax number is 821-0703.
