Drug Education & Management of Student Incidents Involving Drugs

Limited discretion allowed to students to carry medicines for personal use

Those students who have a long term need to carry personal insulin, inhalers or Epipens are permitted to carry their own medication, and are responsible for keeping it secure from other students if they do so. Parents should notify the school of this need. Any student may carry a single dose of their own prescription medication or an over-the counter medication during the school day for their own personal use, and are responsible for keeping it secure from other students if they do so. Such items can be lodged with the school First Responder for safe keeping if preferred. Boarding students must lodge prescription items with their Boarding House. In the unlikely event that a student has been prescribed a controlled drug to be taken during the school day, this must be lodged with the school First Responder.
