Instructions for the affidavit to be signed by parents/guardians choosing the exemption for reasons of conscience, including a religious belief can be found here.

Medication Release

In order to administer medication to your child, we must have:

  1. Your signed permission
  2. All medication must be in the labeled original container
  3. For medication that needs to be taken at home and at school, ask your pharmacist to fix two bottles for you so that you may leave one at school (children do forget to pick up medication to take home.)
