As a reminder, parents of Saint James School students must pick up their child’s medication from our school nurse, Mrs. Vignati, on or before their last scheduled day of school. Medication will NOT be given to your child to take home. The State Department of Drug Enforcement will dispose of medications left at school.
Additionally, your child will need to have an updated medication authorization form signed by your child’s healthcare provider for the 2019-2020 school year. These forms are valid for one school year. This form is attached below. In the fall, you will need to bring the new medication along with updated orders to the school nurse.
All asthma inhalers/nebulizer treatments will also require a written asthma action plan directly from your child’s healthcare provider. They should provide you with this action plan in addition to the written medication authorization plan. Please ask the healthcare provider for BOTH the written asthma action plan AND the written medication authorization plan.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call Mrs. Vignati at 860-642-5088, Extension #3. Please note, the last day she will be available is Wednesday, June 12th.
