It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Kids with actual parenting probably aren't going to need that pill anyway? Either way, those that get the pill aren't going to be pregnant. Less teenage (potential Welfare) moms is a bad thing?

yes, some companies prey on stupid people
but that has no application in this instance. if the student has no need for meds then they will not receive them
quite rare. and where the school can show that it sent the letter to the address provided by the parent(a) as the parent(s) address, that school has satisfied it requirement of notificationAnd notices get lost in the mail,
this is the reason for a requirement to opt out. those indifferent, irresponsible parents who cannot bother to keep track of, or even read their mail from the schools, are more likely to be the ones to have daughters who will need these meds... misplaced and otherwise go unread.
no it doesn't. the parents will have received notification. they will have received notice about what they must do to prevent their daughters from receiving school dispensed meds. they either act on those instructions to opt out or they have agreed that their daughter is eligible to receive the meds as neededSomething this serious needs positive confirmation from the parent.
the parent does get to make the decision. they can decide to opt out - by sending the requisite notice - or by doing nothing they opt in. either way, the parent makes the decisionWhat a parent needs is a letter asking if their child can be included. You don't get to make this decision for the parent.
I don't know what the pharmacy requires. 18 sounds right. My "lady of the night" was 27 so it wasn't an issue in my only personal experience.
My personal sense of it is conflicted. Of course the parents should know but OTOH if the parents are going to be told, a young person might be scared to act promptly and thus get pregnant which starts involving the decision to forcibly end a pregnancy or give the world another unwanted child with an immature mother.
Which is the lesser evil?
I slightly favor the schools position but..........
