Medication

There are circumstances when, under specific regulations, a medication prescribed by a private physician may be administered to a student during school hours. Medications should only be given at school if it is prescribed for a time that cannot be given at home.

If the over the counter/ prescription medication must be given at school the following criteria must be met:

 

  • A written order from the physician must be furnished by the parent.
  • A written request from the parent requesting the school personnel administer the medication as ordered.
  • The family must provide the medication in a bottle, tube or container that has a pharmacy label on it or in the case of over the counter medicines, a label with the child’s name on it.
  • Students are permitted to self carry EMERGENT MEDICATIONS ONLY if physician and parent permission is received and SELF CARRY is stated.
  • Medication MUST be brought to school by the parent or designated adult.
