Medication Administration

Students can have prescription and non-prescription medication at school when it is kept in the health office (emergency medication may be self-carried with prior authorization) and a medication administration form is filled out. Over-the-counter medications can be signed by the parent/guardian. Prescription medications must have a physician's signature. Medications must be brought to the health office in their original bottle with proper labeling. Medication Administration Forms are valid for the current school year only.

Concussions

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI) that affects the way the brain works and can lead to symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and confusion. Symptoms usually go away within a few days to a month with rest and gradual return to school and regular activities. BFHS utilizes a 5-zone concussion restriction protocol based on assessment findings completed by a physician or the athletic trainer. Students who suffer from a concussion should notify the school as soon as possible.
