Rules for Prescription and over-the-counter drugs

The school board approved a medication policy that follows the State of Illinois guidelines.  Students whose doctors feel they need medication during the school hours in order to maintain their health need a written order authorizing the school to administer the medication. 

The Medical Authorization Forms are available in the health office or on the district website.
