Please review the following information that will directly impact the Middle School Overnight Field Trips.
It’s a busy time of year for all. Please review the following information that will directly impact the Middle School Overnight Field Trips. The Delaware Administrative Code was changed in 2013 and there are now laws in place regarding the “Assistance with Self Administration of Medications at Approved School Activities:”
“Non-prescription medications shall be provided to the school nurse by the parent in an original container along with a current, written directive from the student’s licensed health care provider and shall include the student’s name; the licensed health care provider’s name; the name of the medication; the dosage; and how and when it is to be administered.”
In summary, any non-prescription medications including allergy, vitamins and headache relief medications now require a written directive from your licensed health care provider during field trips only.
There have been no changes to the administration of prescription medications at this time. Please remember to fill out the Field Trip permission slip in its entirety. Any EpiPens and inhalers should be sent to school ASAP and will be sent on the field trip.
Please call if there are any questions.
