FVL is no longer able to give out over the counter (OTC)
medication of ANY kind from the school supply, due to Wisconsin
state laws. Any medication a student needs (Sudafed, Tylenol,
Advil, Cough Drops, etc.) must be supplied by each student's parent
or guardian, in the manufacturer's original package. These
over the counter medications can be kept in the student's personal,
locked, school-assigned locker. These are for personal use
only and cannot be shared with any other persons. A completed
parent authorization form is required, even if students will keep
their OTC medication in their lockers.
If you want to provide OTC medication that would be kept for
your child in the school office, you will need to fill out a
medication authorization form and hand it in to the office along
with the medication in its original package with dosage amounts and
times listed on the bottle - FOR EACH CHILD. In other
words, siblings may not share medication from the same bottle or
container, and a parent authorization form is needed for each
PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION MUST BE STORED IN OUR SCHOOL
OFFICE. In the case of liquid medication, the family should
also provide the means of dispensation (spoon, cup, etc., with the
necessary measurements displayed).
Our front office personnel - Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Buser- have
received the required training to be able to dispense oral
forms can be obtained in the school office or can be
downloaded. There are also forms in the office for carrying
an inhaler and an epi
pen -- both of which need a physician's signature. Your doctor can
fax it to (920)739-4418.
Remember, these policies are currently in effect. If you have
any questions, call the school office at (920)739-4441.
