    NOTES FROM THE NURSE 

     

    In middle school, students have the freedom of responsibility to carry a dose of their own over the counter (OTC) medication. Examples include Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Benadryl, allergy and cold medicine, cough drops, throat lozenges, eye drops, TUMS, Pepto-Bismol and Imodium.

    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.
