Beginning September 8, 2015, Robbinsdale Area Schools will no longer send medication home with students during the school year, including the last day of school. On the last day of school, students are only allowed to self-carry prescription asthma inhalers and nonsyringe injectors of epinephrine home from school.
Parents/guardians are responsible for picking up all other student medication directly from the health office. Medication not picked up by the last day of school will be discarded as Pharmaceutical Waste. Only bring enough medication to last through the final day of school to prevent unnecessary disposal of student medication. This change aligns with the district medication policy and serves as an effort to increase safety for students.
Students with permission to self-carry medication per the #516 Student Medication policy can continue to carry medication during the school day as in previous years.
