HSMT 2014 Prescription Medications!

Dear Parents,

During the parent/student orientation we discussed the medication policy for our upcoming Mission Trip.

Please remember to bring any prescription meds that your student will need for the trip to Linnette Mercado in the PCW Church office, labeled in a zip lock bag with instructions and in the original container (which you will get back)  no later than WEDNESDAY, June 18 by 5pm.  If there are any over the counter meds that your student may need, please send along in a zip lock bag. 

We will be bringing the medications listed on the medical form you completed; therefore, there is no need to send: Advil, Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Immodium, Benadryl, Hydrocortisone Ointment.  If you are unsure, please contact me by email   or my cell:  908-578-1759.

Regarding inhalers and EpiPens, please have your student carry their inhaler or EpiPen, but please send a "backup"  to Linnette Mercado in the church office.  Our experience is that inhalers get lost or left in luggage and are sometimes needed quickly on a work site. Everything will be returned to your student at the conclusion of the trip.

If you have any medical concerns that you would like to relay, please contact me ASAP.  All information will be kept in strict confidence and only shared with your permission with the appropriate adults on the trip.

Thanks so much!
Janet Smith
