  22. Medications • NEVER send a child’s medication with the child. It MUST BE BROUGHT IN BY A PARENT AND TAKEN STRAIGHT TO HEALTH CLINIC ASSISTANCE—Even cough drops! • If your child is taking cold or allergy medicine or an antibiotic, please send in a note. There may be a change in the child’s behavior because of the medication. • If your child is/was sick, make sure they are fever free (without tylenol/advil) for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This also goes for medications. Please see Ms. McClellan in the clinic if you have any questions.
