Non-prescription medications (cough syrups, cough drops, Tylenol, etc.) will not be given by school personnel unless accompanied by a note from the parent, or after a phone contact with the parent. All prescription medication will be kept in the office. In the event a student is injured or becomes ill while at school, he/she will be sent to the office. The parents will be notified by the principal or administrative assistant. When the parent has no telephone or can't be reached, the school will call the emergency number. In an emergency, if the parents and the emergency number can't be reached, the school will either take the student to their family doctor at the FAMC Clinic or the hospital emergency room via ambulance as circumstances dictate.
