Medication Pick Up Information
Medication Pick Up Information
Wheatridge Middle
Monday, May 20, 2019

Dear Parent and/or Guardian,

As the school year comes to a close, please make arrangements to pick up your child’s
medication. While inhalers and OTC medications can be sent home in your student’s
backpack on the last day of school, all other medications need to be retrieved from the
health room by a parent, guardian, or someone on your emergency contact list. The
health room will be open until 4:00 pm on May 24, 2019. Any remaining medications
will be disposed of at this time.

If your student is participating in USD 231 summer programming, extended school year,
etc.), medications should not be brought to school, unless for an emergency, along
with a physician’s order.

As a reminder, a new physician’s order will be required for all action plans/orders prior
to the first day of school (August 13, 2019) for the 2019-2020 school year. This
includes Food Allergy, Seizure, and Asthma Action Plans, along with Diabetes orders. A
new copy of these Action Plans can be found on the USD 231 website and in the health
room. Your child’s physician has to sign these Action Plans/orders at the start of every
school year so we have updated information for your child. Some Action Plans also
require a parent/guardian signature. When school resumes in August, please bring
medications that are not expired, with a new physician order to the health room.

All prescription medication must be in a pharmacy labeled bottle with student name,
medication name, and proper dosing instructions. This includes medication that is
being dropped off throughout the school year to replenish the supply already in the
health room. All medications must be hand delivered and/or picked up by a parent,
guardian, or someone on the emergency contact list throughout the entire school year.

If your child has a food allergy, paperwork is also available for modifications to be made
to meals/drinks provided by district food services. Depending on the needs of your
child, doctor and/or parent signature is required, and updated paperwork must be
completed at the beginning of each new school year. This service is available, but not
required. Please contact Nutrition Services at 913-856-2066 to learn more.

Thank you for helping us to ensure the 2019-20 school year is a great one! Have a safe
and fun summer!

Sincerely,
Kristi Dye BSN, RN
