District policy is that ALL medications must be kept in the Health Office. A minor is NEVER allowed to bring medication to the Health Office. Any medication must be brought by the parent/guardian and will not be administered until all consents are complete.

Arizona State law (ARS 15-344) requires that medication must be delivered to the Health Office staff in the original container as packaged by the manufacturer and labeled with the student's name.
