In an effort to avoid delays through the screening, students will be turning in their medication at the school during check in for the chaperones to hold onto until the student has cleared the screening process. Chaperones should be aware of any and all medications (over-the-counter and prescription medication) their students are bringing with them to Knotts Berry Farm. Should the student need the medication while riding on the bus to Knott’s Berry Farm, the medication will be in the chaperone’s possession on the same bus as the student. Once the student has cleared the screening process at Knott’s Berry Farm the chaperone will hand the student their medication to be kept in the student’s possession for the remainder of the Grad Nite event.
