New Requirements to Administer Medication:
Beginning this fall, 2013, any medication that may need to be administered during the before or after care program must be accompanied by a Medication Order Form that has been signed by a physician. This included rescue inhalers and Epi-pens.
If your child has a life threatening health condition that requires an epi-pen or rescue inhaler we must have those items in our program. We will not be able to access those
items in the school's health room. If we do not have them your child cannot attend our program.
