    Medication paperwork must be fully completed yearly (returning students need updated forms)

    Over the Counter Medicine -  Parents must sign this form before any medicine can be sent to school. This includes Cough Drops, Anbesol, etc.  All medicine will be locked up in the Houghtaling office and your child will come to the office as directed by parents' direction on the medicine form.

    Prescription Medicine -  Parent and Doctor both must fill out paperwork before any medication can be brought to school. All medicine will be locked up in the medicine cabinet and taken per doctor instructions on the paperwork.
