All Jekyll Island medications should have been turned in by now. This includes prescription or daily meds, as well as over-the-counter or "just in case" drugs such as Tylenol or Pepto-Bismol. If you did not pick up a medication form at our parent meeting, you may fill one out when you drop your student's meds off with the school nurse. The only medicines that may be carried with or stored by the student are those that are immediately necessary in an emergency situation, such as inhalers, EpiPens, and insulin, (parents must still submit a medication form for these items).
