Medical Conditions – Parent/Guardian Packages

  • Given that the school year is drawing to a close, please assist us by addressing the following items:
  1. If we currently hold medication for your child, please note that it must be picked up by dismissal (1:40 p.m.) on Friday, June 28, 2019. We do not store medications over the summer.

Medication or any other medical apparatus (i.e. AeroChamber ®, EpiPen ®),
which is not picked up will be sent home with your child at dismissal.

For safety reasons, please immediately inspect your child’s backpack for medications upon arrival at home. 

  1. We have sent home health care forms for the 2019-2020 school year. Please complete the forms. The completed forms MUST be completed and returned to the school during the week of August 26, 2019.  
  • With these completed forms, please provide:
  1. Updated medication for the 2019-2020 school year in a Ziploc® bag that is clearly labeled with your child’s name. 
  1. For PRESCRIBED medications, complete MEDS.1-P form (Request and Consent for the Administration of Prescribed Medication) PRIOR to your child’s first day in September 2019.

Please understand that at the beginning of the school year, parents assume complete responsibility for the administration of the medications their children require until such time as all of the requirements of #2 above are satisfied in full.

  • Thank you in advance for your cooperation regarding the safe provision of medication and the information pertaining to your child. Their safety, and the safety of all other students, is our priority.


Yours in Catholic Education,

N. Costa
