Students who are to take any type of medication during the day, including aspirin, must have the medication held and dispensed from the nurse's office.  If over-the-counter and/or prescription medications are to be taken during the school day, the parents must bring the medication in the original package to the nurse.  A medical authorization form must be signed before medications can be dispensed during the school day. 
In addition, a note from the parent/guardian must be brought to the office in order for a student to carry cough drops.
