One mother sounded the alarm when she discovered a health class assignment at Mapleton Junior High School was to catalog the contents of their parents’ medicine cabinet on a form titled “Medicine Cabinet Inventory” and turn it into the teacher, reports Fox 13.
The form includes spaces for the name of the medication, whether it’s prescription or over-the-counter, what it’s for, when it expires and whether it’s FDA-approved.
Parent Onika Nugent posted a picture of the form on Facebook and sent a letter to the teacher and the principal detailing her privacy concerns.
“I said, ‘Although it may be a good idea for parents to do an inventory of their medicine cabinet, I believe it is inappropriate for students to counsel their parents, or report to the school what that inventory is. It is a complete invasion of privacy,’” she said before some assembled media outside the school.
