    Medication at School 2021-2022 School Year
    If you believe your child will require medication at school, prescription or over-the-counter, during the 2021-2022 school year, please download the Medication Permission Form. Ask your child's doctor to complete this form over the summer and bring the signed form with the prescribed medication on the first day of school. Check the expiration dates on all Inhalers, Epi-pens, and diabetic supplies to ensure they will last through the end of the 2021-2022 school year. 
    Attention High School, Middle School, and Eden Hall Families
    If your student will be carrying his/her epi-pen or inhaler, please complete the Permission to Carry Epi-Pens/Inhalers/Diabetic Supplies Form and return to your building's school nurse.​ This is in addition to the school district's Medication Permission Form.
    Food Allergies
    If your child has a life-threatening food allergy and requires an epi-pen at school, please have your doctor complete this Food Allergy Action Plan and bring this completed plan with the medication on the first day of school. For grades K-6, we are asking that parents complete an Allergy Self Management Checklist to be submitted at the beginning of next school year. 
    Please be sure your child's immunizations are in compliance with Pennsylvania Department of Health & Allegheny County guidelines before the beginning of the school year.
    Please note the immunization requirements for students going into 7th and 12th grade. These are required before the start of school. Please provide an updated immunization record to the school health office.
