    Medications for After School Activities/Events:

    In regard to emergency medications a student may need available for after school activities/events, it is extremely important parents/guardians notify the school nurse and individual in charge of the activity/event about this need.  Examples of emergency medications include Epi pens®, Insulin, Glucagon and asthma inhalers.  After regular school hours, the clinic is closed and a nurse is not available.  Please note, a student may carry emergency medications when the proper procedure is followed.  It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to develop a plan with the nurse and the individual in charge of the afterschool activity/event so a safe environment may be maintained.
