    Medication Drop Off

    We are requesting that families drop all Health Action Plans and medications off at Prairie View before all the excitement of the first day of school, ensuring that all daily and emergency medications are available to our students when they need them. 

    There will be a collection station for all action plans and medications located at the front door of Prairie View:

    Tuesday, September 1st 7:00am-3:00pm
    Wednesday, September 2nd 7:00am-3:00pm and 5:00pm-6:30pm

    Friday, September 4th 7:00am-3:00pm

    Ensure that all action plans or doctor's orders are current (dated within one calendar year), medications must not be expired (we can not administer expired medications at school) and in their original packaging with the pharmacy label intact.  For over the counter medications, all items need to be clearly labeled with your students name.

    Please complete all required information when filling out the details on the labeled bag (that will be provided at the collection station) when you are dropping off any supplies to ensure all medication is safely collected.  This information will include:

    • STUDENTS NAME
    • BEST CONTACT NUMBER TO REACH YOU
