Over-The-Counter (OTC) Medications

Under the NH Department of Education administrative rule Ed 311.02, a parent or guardian must give written permission for a child to receive short-term OTC medication at school. Forms are sent home the first day of school, and a new form must be completed and signed every school year.  Please see the link below for a copy of this form.

MEDICATIONS CAN NOT BE GIVEN WITHOUT A SIGNED AUTHORIZATION ON FILE.

Below is a list of oral OTC medications available in the Health Office:

  • ibuprofen (Motrin/Advil--for headache/body aches)
  • acetaminophen (Tylenol--for headache/body aches)
  • diphenhydramine (Benadryl-for severe allergic reaction)
  • Tums (chewable antacid for upset stomach)
  • Oragel (for oral pain)
  • non-medicated cough drops

OTC medications will be administered only to relieve occasional symptoms of pain/discomfort and not to keep an ill child in school.

Please note: We do not stock daily cold/cough/allergy medications; these must be given by parents at home.

If your child needs an OTC medication more often than occasionally, the School Nurse may request a health care provider's evaluation and written authorization to continue giving the medication. With more than occasional use, you may be asked to provide a supply of medication for your child as well.

All medications must be delivered to the school BY AN ADULT in the original container.

Any medication left at the end of the school year will be discarded one week after the last day of school.

IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU KEEP A COPY OF ANY MEDICAL PAPERWORK YOU SEND IN WITH YOUR CHILD.

 

Volunteer Fingerprinting

FingerprintSAU #19 continues to host fingerprinting opportunities throughout the school year on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Volunteers do not need to make an appointment during these open times, just check in with the receptionist at the SAU office. You will need a photo identification and a personal check or money order for $20.75 made payable to State of NH - Criminal Records (which per-New Boston policy, can be reimbursed once you document six hours of volunteer time). Cash payment will no longer be accepted.
