Medications sent unlabeled will not be given.

All medications will be kept in the clinic with this exception: a student may carry an inhaler, epi-pen, or diabetic supplies and medications by doctor's written order. Irresponsible behavior will revoke the privilege.

Any change in the medication or procedure will require completion of a new form.
