The School Nurse’s Office is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.
Medication at Moorestown Friends School must be delivered to school by the parent or guardian. It is picked up by the parent or guardian at the end of the school year or the end of the medication dispensing period. Students are only allowed to take medication at school when it is administered by the school nurse in the health office.
A Nurse accompanies all Middle School overnight trips to ensure safety and handle medications. If there is an Upper School overnight trip unaccompanied by medical personnel, a physician must sign a Self Medication Form.
Middle School and Upper School students who may require inhalers or EPI Pens may carry their emergency drugs with them if their physician completes the Self Medication Form. It is advisable to keep an extra inhaler or EPI Pen in the health office. Lower School students must keep inhalers in the health office, and will use their inhaler in the health office. EPI Pens are kept in the Lower School classrooms and are taken with students on field trips.
