If your child requires prescription or over the counter medicine, a Student Medical Information Form must have been submitted. The following procedure will take place:

  • Homeroom teachers will give students a ziploc bag with their name on it on Monday, November 11th.
  • Parents must place medication in the ziploc bag.
  • The medication must be returned to the Health Room no later than Monday, November 18th for checking. 
  • DSCS/DSCAP students submit to the Health Room in Taikoo Shing and DSCKE students submit to the Health Room in KE.
  • Ziploc bags will be collected on Friday, November 22nd from the Health Room by Program Leaders.
  • DSCKE will send via school currier all medications collected to the DSCTKS Health Room for distribution to Program Leaders.
  • The Health Room staff will place the medication and the medical form in the ziploc bag.
  • Students may be given their Asthma inhaler once at destination. Staff will ensure they know how to use it and when to ask for help.

If your child needs the medicine between November 18th and the day we leave, please have them give the medicine in the ziploc bag to the assigned supervisor at the airport.  All medicine must be in original packaging. The medicine must be taken under teacher supervision. Under no circumstances are students to carry, share, or misuse any medications. Any breach of this policy will result in the student facing disciplinary action upon return to the School.

The School reserves the right to exclude students from certain programs and to remove students from programs after sign-up based on student behaviour and conduct.
