When possible, all medication should be given by the parent at home.  If that is not possible, medication may be administered by the school health aide; Mrs. Krupa.  All medication, prescription and over-the-counter, must be accompanied by the school medical form which has been completed by the parent and physician requesting that the medication be given.  All medication must be received in the original container labeled with the student's name, name of medication, and the proper dosage. Medication is to be brought to the clinic/office by the parent, not the student.  If you have any questions, please contact the clinic at our direct line (440) 358-8604.

No child should have medication with him/her at anytime, including non-prescription drugs such as aspirin, Tylenol, essential oils or cough drops.  Students who carry medication with them (inhalers, epic-pen) may do so only with prior approval by a physician and parent.  The proper paperwork must be filled with the school health aide.
