New Over-The-Counter Medication Policy for Grades 9-12

Posted on: September 13, 2023
Lebanon is happy to announce a new Over-The-Counter (OTC) medication policy for students in Grades 9-12. This OTC medication policy ONLY applies to students in grades 9-12. Eighth-grade students participating in the Washington D.C. trip should continue using the forms included in their field trip packet or see Kathy Vaughn for additional questions. 
We understand the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all our students, and we believe this policy update will contribute to achieving that goal. If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact our school nurses, Elizabeth Cain or Laura Fabik, or our administration. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we continue to prioritize the well-being of our students.

Here are the key details of the new policy:

  1. Medication Authorization Form: All students in Grades 9-12 who require OTC medication during school hours must have their parent/guardian complete and submit the Medication Authorization Form. This form can be obtained from the school's nurse's office or downloaded here.

  2. Parent/Guardian Consent: Parents or guardians must provide written consent on the Medication Authorization Form. Please note that students who do not have this consent will not be allowed to take OTC medication while at school.

  3. Medication Storage: OTC medications must be stored in their original containers and kept in a secure location, such as the school nurse's office. 

  4. Emergency Situations: In emergency situations, our school staff will have access to essential OTC medications to ensure the safety and well-being of our students.
