Cough Drops at School

Cough Drops at School

If you feel your child needs cough drops for a scratchy throat, keep this in mind: if they contain menthol they are considered a medication and require the medication request/consent form be completed.  If they do NOT contain menthol, such as “Fruit Breezers”, they can be kept in the classroom and paperwork is not necessary. 

Also, please remember cough drops sent to school must be sent in the original package that lists the ingredients and directions.

If you have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact:
