Before any medication is given at school, and to insure the health and safety of the students needing medication in school, please contact your school nurse before bringing the medication to school. She will provide the required physician and parent forms. The following forms must be on file in the Nurse’s Office before any medication will be given:
- A signed Parent Consent/Administration Form
- A completed Physician/Prescription Medication Form
Prescription medication may be given at school with a signed Physician Medication Order. All orders must be renewed each school year. A student, with proper MD orders and parental consent, may carry inhalers and epi-pens. All medication must be in the original container. The pharmacist can give you a second bottle for use at school. No more than a 30-day supply of the medication should be delivered to the school.
Some over the counter medications (only FDA approved medications) may be given in school if it is supplied by the parents in the original container with a current expiration date. It must be accompanied by a signed consent. The school does not have medications on hand to give to your child.
This policy has been put in place to ensure the health and safety of your child as well as other students within the building. Please do not give your child loose medication to carry in his/her pocket.
