Middletown Area School District plans ‘Medication Drop-off Night’ on Aug. 21

Posted

In preparation for the new school year, the Middletown Area School District will hold a “Medication Drop-off Night” from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21, to encourage parents to deliver medications and all required medical documentation to their child’s school prior to the first day of school.

In accordance with school district policy, no prescription medication or over-the-counter medication (Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc) will be administered by school personnel without a parent or guardian signature and specific written instructions from a physician.

At Fink, Kunkel and Reid elementary schools, the drop-off will be in the nurse’s offices.

At Middletown Area Middle School and Middletown Area High School, it will be held in the school lobbies.

Medications and required paperwork not received on drop-off night may prevent your child from receiving their medications on the first day of school, according to the district.

Updated immunization information may also be brought to the school during this time.

A completed student medication form; a written physician’s order for each medication, including over the counter medications; all medications in original labeled containers; and proof of immunizations (if applicable) should be brought during the drop-off Aug. 21.

Questions may be directed to Assistant to the Superintendent Chelton Hunter at 717-948-3300, ext. 1008.
