End of Year Student Medication Pick up

To: Parents/ Guardian of students with medications at school

(Including Inhalers and Epi-Pens)

The last day of school for students and staff is June 17. If your child has medication at school, please plan to pick up your child’s medication no later than 3:00 pm on June 17

th, 2022. Any medication left at school after June 17th will be disposed of. Per school board policy, medications CANNOT be left at school over the summer. Please contact Wentworth school at 730-4600, if you need to make other arrangements to pick up your child’s medication.

Please remember that updated physician orders and parental permission are required at the

beginning of each school year. The medication policy and permission forms can be accessed online at the Scarborough School Department Board of Education Policies section JLCD and JLCD-E1. Click here for a copy or refer to our website for a copy of the Permission to Administer Medication Form. The form can be completed by you and your physician during the summer prior to the start of school.

Asthma Action Plans and Food Allergy Action plans are very helpful in our efforts to keep children safe at school. These forms are available on our school websites. They are located in the Health Services section (part of Student Advocacy or Student Support). Please remember that both physician and parent/guardian are required to sign these forms.

In an effort to make the first day of school as smooth as possible, the nursing staff will be available to accept medications and required paperwork on August 29th through September 1, 2022, between 8:30 am and 3:00pm. Please remember that an adult must deliver medications to and from school. Students may not carry medications. This policy is in effect to protect all students.
