No-Tylenol proposal gives school committee a headache

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 13, 2007 04:00 PM



Some Milford School Committee members said a recent meeting that they donít support a proposal to require students to bring their own Tylenol to school.

The new policy was put forward by Milford schools nursing director Judy Dagnese, who said her staff is seeing an excessive amount of visits from students seeking the pain medication. But committee members said they wouldnít be comfortable telling students they canít get Tylenol if they need it.

Committee member Lori Baranauskas also said the policy might pose a problem for students who canít afford to bring in their own Tylenol. The committee put off a vote on the proposal until a future meeting, Baranauskas said.
