E. L. Wright Middle School has a fully equipped Health Room with a full-time registered nurse and a Health Room assistant. The Health Room is open from 7:35 a.m.–2:25 p.m. Students who become ill during the day should obtain a pass from a teacher or administrator and report to the Health Room with their student identification and the pass.
The school does not furnish any medication to students, including Tylenol. Students who need to take medication during the school day must bring the medication in the original container with a note from the parent to the Health Room first thing in the morning.
Medication sent without a parent note, or not properly labeled cannot be administered.
All prescription medication, including inhalers, must be in the original prescription bottle or box, with the most recent prescription date on the label.
Medication is administered only according to the prescription label, unless a physician’s note changes the dose of the medication.
All prescription medications must have a physician's signature and parent signature on the medication prescription form.
For field trips and after school activities, parents must provide medications for students. The Health Room will not do this.
The only exception to this policy is for emergency medications such as inhalers and Epi-pens. The Health Room sends these medications only.
All medications for field studies should be sent to the Health Room in advance so the nurse can give them to the proper adult chaperones, along with the emergency bag. Students may not have responsibility for their own prescription and nonprescription medication for field studies.
