Vernon School takes its commitment to good health very seriously. Office staff are regularly trained to administer medications to students and give basic first aid. Medications (prescription and non-prescription) that need to be given during the school day require a signed authorization from the parent. Medications must be received in original containers with doctor's name and prescription and dosage information clearly visible. Please contact the School Office for more information.
