Please complete the appropriate  medication form(s)  (see links below) for your student to have medications at Nease High School.

Prescription Medication:

  • If your student requires prescription medication to be kept in the school clinic, this form must be completed and signed by the physician and the parent/guardian.
  •   Rx Medication Authorization Form
  • (Note: ALL prescription medications must be kept in the clinic, with the exception of inhalers, EpiPen/Auvi-Q auto-injectors and emergency Glucagon.)  Students found in possession of medications without the proper paperwork on file will be subject to disciplinary action as noted in the Student Code of Conduct.

 

Over the Counter Medication:

  • Students may self-carry over-the-counter medications by submitting this completed form to the clinic and keeping a copy with them at all times.
  • Self-Administration of Non-Prescription (OTC) Medication Form
  • All OTC medications must be in the original packaging (NO loose pills). Student/parent may also choose to keep their OTC medication in the clinic.

Student Illnesses

A parent/guardian will be called whenever a student has a fever over 100 degrees, diarrhea or vomiting, significant pain, repeated complaints, or anything out of the ordinary.

Please remember that if students are sent home with a fever, they must be fever free for 24 hours before they return. This means that they should not return the next day. The 24 hour period begins from the time they no longer have a fever.  If you are not sure if you should keep your child out of school due to illness, click here:   ILLNESS GUIDELINES.
