ESY Medication Announcement
Our ESY program will begin on Wednesday, July 5 from 9 am to 12 noon.
It is our hope that your child’s medication can be given before or after ESY due to the short school day.
However, IF your child requires a scheduled medication during ESY hours, you MUST call your doctor and obtain a physician order AND the medication MUST be sent in a pharmacy-labeled bottle with your child’s full name and the name of the medication. This also includes as-needed rescue medications for seizures or anaphylactic medications for severe allergies. Orders and medication can be sent in on the first day of ESY OR orders can be faxed to 724-728-4520.
Our school nurses are NOT permitted to dispense medication to your child WITHOUT an order from your doctor.
Please remember to apply sunscreen to your child PRIOR to your child leaving home.
If you have any questions regarding medication administration, please call NEW HORIZON SCHOOL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
