Even if the medication bottle/box/package is empty, we prefer that parents pickup their student's medication bag so that you can discard it or save for next year to re-use. If your student is participating in another program this year (Winter Guard, Wind Symphony) for which travel is planned, you can leave 'as needed' medication with us if it still applies.
