Per Diocesan policy, our nurse is NOT allowed to administer basic over the counter medicines like Advil or Tylenol without the consent of the parent and the child’s pediatrician.  Below is the Diocesan form that may be used to acquire these signatures in order for your child to receive the medication when needed.  Please return the form to our nurse to keep on file.  A new form must be submitted each year to permit the meds to be dispensed.
