    prescription medication has been started, or they have a Dr. Note stating the student is not 
    contagious.

"MEDICATION"
All medication needs to be kept in the clinic; It MUST BE in the original container and MUST BE age appropriate. The prescription label must include the student's name, Dr's name, prescription date, name of the medication, and directions for administration.
