At the time of enrollment, Legal Guardians are expected to read and sign the Consent for Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medication policy. In accordance with the policy, a prescription drug or an over-the-counter drug must come in the original container. The pharmaceutical label must be on the container of any prescription drug. The parent or legal guardian must provide signed and written directions to the school regarding medication to be administered. All medications shall be kept in the school office. When necessary, provisions may be made for students to carry asthma inhalers when accompanied by a doctor’s note. Failure to comply with the Consent for Prescription and Over-the-Counter Medication policy on or off campus or at school sponsored events will result in notification to the authorities and a possible suspension or expulsion from Alta Vista High School.
