Important Message from the School Nurse
Parents,

If your student has medication in the nurse’s office at Dunwoody High School, county regulations require you to pick up this medication prior to the end of the school year. We are not allowed to keep medication past the last day of school, May 23rd. All medication left after this date will be destroyed. Please feel free to pick up your student’s medication any time between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm from the nurse. If you would like to pick up the medication outside of these hours, I am happy to accommodate you. Let me know a time and date, and I will take the medication to Ms. Mitchell (front office) or Ms. Curry (discipline). Per county rules, your student is not allowed to carry medication on school grounds without a permission-to-carry form completed. If the student has a permission-to-carry-form completed for insulin, Diastat, an inhaler, or an Epi-Pen, they may come to the clinic and pick up their own medication. However, if they have any other drugs here, e.g. Benadryl, you will still have to pick up the medicine.

As a reminder for next school year, each medication brought to the school for a student, must have the correct form completed, for me to keep it in the clinic. I am attaching these forms, so if you need to have them completed over the summer, you may. This includes all over the counter medication, as well as, prescription meds. If the medication is expired or unlabeled, I am not able to accept it. Please confirm your student’s medication is labeled and in date, prior to bringing it back next year. FYI: All medication forms must be signed by a physician. The regular med form is good for a calendar year. The permission-to-carry-form is good forever. I am not discarding forms. You only need new ones if they have expired.

It has been a pleasure working with and getting to know your students this year. I look forward to seeing them again next year.


Sincerely,

Suzi Kaplan, BSN, RN
