If you haven’t made your second deposit, please include it with your final payment.





SRVUSD Administration of Medication Form Due Date: 1/31/2020

As our tour is fast-approaching, we are sending out the SRVUSD Administration of Medication Form now so that you have time to review, complete and obtain any necessary signatures from your family doctor(s).
Note: To clarify, all Disney Participants that require any medication (OTC-over the counter and/or prescription) must submit this form.




The form allows students to bring over-the-counter and/or prescription medication with them on tour. The District requires that you and your physician fill out the attached form.
Please read the form in its entirety and take special note of Section III requiring those immediate and emergency medications that need to be in the possession of the student (i.e. anti-seizure meds, asthma inhalers, Epi-pens, etc). If a student currently carries an Epi-pen, a second Epi-pen must be provided to Mr. Nishida for the duration of the tour.
If necessary, attach an additional page that details specific environmental and/or food allergies, sensitivities and circumstances that Mr. Nishida and chaperones should be aware of, even if you have already listed food allergies or sensitivities during the registration and/or payment process.


  • For OTC meds, parents may complete the district approved medication order form
    ==>SRVUSD Administration of Medication Form<==
    with ALL required information and sign.
    No physician signature required.



  • For those students that do not need any medications (prescription or OTC) no medical form is needed.
Additionally, please note:


  • Teachers and chaperones will not have over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol, Motrin, Advil, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc. on the trip. District policy does not allow teachers and chaperones to obtain these medications and dispense them. If a student requires one of these over the counter pain relievers, the medication must be authorized by both the physician and the parent(s). Mr. Nishida will retain the medication for dosing. No sharing of medications (prescription or over-the-counter) is allowed between students.
  • If a student currently has clearance to carry any medication on their person at SRVHS, that clearance covers this trip, but you will need to provide information regarding this clearance to Mr. Nishida prior to the trip.
Remember, during an emergency, the first question an EMT will ask is about the type of medication the person is currently taking. This information is critical to the safety of your child.




There will be a chaperone meeting in the next 2 weeks. Keep a look out for the date/time.
We are looking forward to a great Disney 2020 Tour!!
**Please let us know about any food allergies/concerns so we can let our tour operator know**
