Medications At School
- 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.
- 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.
- For the safety of your child, the parent/guardian must deliver all medications to the school office.
- 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.
- All prescription medication must be in a current pharmacy-label container. Ask the pharmacist for a second labeled bottle for home use, if needed.
- Students cannot carry medication on their person except emergency medications and approved medications prescribed for self-administration.
- 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.
- The first dose of a new medication should be given at home in case of a possible allergic reaction.
