Delhi Middle School Policies

The policies of Delhi Middle school are designed to be both specific to Delhi and yet remain within the policies established by the School Board for the entire Oak Hills Local Schools District. The following section contains the polices developed for Delhi and links to the District policies where appropriate.

Medication Policy

Students are not permitted to carry any prescription or over the counter medication on their person.  All medication that a student is required to take during school hours must be taken to the health clinic at the beginning of the school day.  Prescription medications must be delivered to school by a responsible adult in its original container with a completed Permission to Administer form signed by the physician and parent. When a dosage change occurs, a revised Permission to Administer form signed by the physician must be resubmitted.  Over the counter medication  must be in its original container and requires a parental note indicating the medication name, dosage and time and date(s) of administration.  If a parent anticipates their student will need the over the counter medication throughout the school year, a Permission to Administer form signed by the physician will be needed.  Please see  OHLSD Nursing web page for the Permission to Administer medication form. other medication forms and additional vaccination information.

Failure to follow this policy could result in a ten-day suspension with a recommendation to the superintendent for expulsion.
