OP, did you provide your Rx in the prescription bottle itself? So what would happen if you showed up for class anyway? Can you appeal to the Principal?
I used to get sick a lot before I had my tonsils taken out and so on the weekends I went to my dad’s house (he picked me up directly from school) if I had antibiotics that I had to bring over, my mom had to drive me to school and bring it to the nurse and then my dad had to pick them up directly from the nurse because I was told I could get expelled for having it with me in school or on the bus, even if I just had it for a few mins at the end of the day-they let me pick it up but after a while even stopped doing that. The public school system is very strict on any type medication
Why would the school nurse want to take your epilepsy meds? C’mon, how much were you charging or was she going to pay in a non-cash way, if you know what I mean? ;)
Some districts have a policy that require medications that students need to take, while at school, be handed by the school nurse. These policies are meant to help make sure the students are taking their medication properly. They also are in place to prevent students from selling their drugs.
Something that bothers me - If the medication was for OP and in a Rx with OP’s name, why was OP giving the medication to the school nurse?
