Please communicate with Pali Institute if the school or district has any specific regulations about medications, including what is required for a field trip and if over-the-counter medications can be used. For example, Pali Institute only requires permission from parents for over-the-counter medications, but often some districts require doctor’s paperwork beyond that.
The morning of the trip, please collect all medications from students and their families. Medications should be:
- In the original container and noted on the health form
- Packed individually in plastic bags labeled with the student’s name and school name
- Placed all in a box labeled with your school’s name for the Pali nurses.
Please be aware that our nurses CANNOT distribute any medications or vitamins unless they are in the original container and noted on the health form. Any medications in pill boxes will not be distributed.
