Emergency Contact Information

  • The school nurse uses the parent/guardian/emergency contact information collected in ASPEN to reach you in the event of a medical emergency. It is of utmost importance that the information provided is accurate and current. Please complete the emergency information for each student electronically via the ASPEN system upon enrollment, annually and ongoing if contact/medical information changes.

Medications

  • A written medication order from an authorized prescriber and signed by parent/guardian is required for school nurses (or in the absence of a nurse, other designated personnel) to administer medication.  This includes any over-the-counter medication. Medications must be in the original, properly labeled container and dispensed by a physician/pharmacist. Over-the-counter medications must be delivered in an unopened, properly labeled container. 

  • ALL medications must be delivered to/from school by a parent, guardian or other responsible adult. All medication will be destroyed if not picked up within one week following termination of the order or the last day of school, whichever comes first. The medication form can be located here.

*Each school will share a medication drop-off schedule prior to the first day of school
