Medications At School

  1. If your child needs medication(s) during school hours, a Medication Prescriber/Parent Authorization form must be signed. This form must be renewed every school year.
  2. Only medications that are required to be given during school hours will be administered. Medications prescribed for 1, 2, or 3 times a day can be given at home.
  3. For the safety of your child, the parent/guardian must deliver all medications to the school office.
  4. The Medication Prescriber/Parent Authorization form must be signed before any prescription medication can be administered at school. If the medication order is changed during the school year, a new authorization form is required. If the medication is stopped, please notify the school nurse and pick up any remaining medication.
  5. All prescription medication must be in a current pharmacy-label container. Ask the pharmacist for a second labeled bottle for home use, if needed.
  6. Students cannot carry medication on their person except emergency medications and approved medications prescribed for self-administration.
  7. Over-the-Counter medication requires a Medication Prescriber/Parent Authorization Form. The medication must be in an unopened, unexpired original container, and age-appropriate. The school does not stock or provide over-the-counter medications.
  8. The first dose of a new medication should be given at home in case of a possible allergic reaction.
