NOTES FROM THE NURSE

Secondary students are allowed to carry on their person over the counter medication needed for one school day. All self-administered medication must be in a container properly labeled by the pharmacy or manufacturer and enough for one school day at a time. Exceptions to this include Schedule II medications which students are never allowed to carry for self-administration. All Schedule II medications must be stored and administered through the school health office.
Students are not allowed to share medications.
If a student continues to feel ill during this time of COVID-19 they should promptly visit the school nurse for an assessment of symptoms. If you have any questions, please contact the Gentry health office at 573-214-3246.Thank you for your help in keeping Gentry a healthy and safe environment for all students.
