Student Medications


Does your child have medication in the school clinic?  This is a reminder for you to pick up the medication on or before the last day of school.
Leon County Schools (LCS) medication policy states that medication must be picked up within one week of the ending date on the permission form.  Please remember that students cannot transport medications, therefore, all medication must be picked up by a parent/guardian.

Medication that is not picked up within that time frame will be disposed of.

Please call the school (850) 488-7110 if you have any questions regarding your child’s medication.
