During the next few weeks, Suzanne, our district school nurse will be reaching out to the parents of students who have medications and medical supplies in the buildings. She will contact you to discuss options regarding medication pick up or disposal. The State of Michigan law requires that all medications that are not picked up must be discarded. If you know that you will not be picking up your child's medications or if you have any questions or concerns please contact Suzanne at firstname.lastname@example.org or 269-782-4440 ext. 1129.
Suzanne would like to remind all parents that if your child will need to have any medication (prescription or over the counter) for the next school year, a new medication authorization form must be completed by a physician prior to the medication being brought to school. This form may be found on our Dowagiac Union Schools website in the School Nurse Section.
