Allergy Policy 5121.4
The Colchester School District requires that parents/guardians of children with life threatening allergy or chronic health conditions notify the school and provide medical documentation information about the management of the condition.
Medication Policy 5141.21
Connecticut State Law requires a written medication order signed by you and your doctor for any medication to be administered in school. Medication must be in its original container. This includes all medications over the counter and prescription. Students are only allowed to bring medication to school after appropriate paperwork has been submitted and approved. Unused medication must be picked up at the end of the school year by a parent or guardian, or the medication will be disposed. Please click here to view the district medication policy. Please contact the school nurse if you have any questions or concerns. Please note students participating in interscholastic sports that will be self-administering inhalers or EpiPens, need to have the medication order signed by the doctor, parent and nurse.
