School Medication Administration
1. All nonprescription medications must be in the original package/bottle, with the child's name clearly marked on the container. All prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy container with the correct information on the label.
2. All medications (prescription or over-the-counter) must be accompanied by a "Medication Administration Request" form with a parent/guardian's signature and a physician's signature. Medications will only be administered at school at the specific times noted on the form. Any changes in dose, time, or medication will require a new form and a new container with the correct pharmacy information.
3. The above rules apply to any medication a student may need to carry with them, such as an EpiPen or inhaler. Both the mediation and the medication form must be checked into the Health Office at the beginning of the school year. The physician must check "yes" on the form stating "student may carry mediation." Emergency medications should be accessible on the first day of school. Please connect with your school site health professional to get paperwork completed before school starts in August.
