Medications should be limited to prescriptions those required during school hours and necessary to maintain the child in school. School nurses should administer medications or other non –medical personnel designated by the school principal. Any student required to take medication at school must comply with the following regulations:

  • The Health Services Dept. will provide a written permission form for prescription medications to the school. This form must be completely filled out and signed by the parent and the child’s licensed health care provider.
  • A new permission form must be provided to the school at the beginning of each new year. The permission form must be updated when there is a change in dosage or time of medication.
  • Middle school students may bring this medication to school, but it must be carried to the office immediately upon the student’s arrival at school. Medication must be in the original bottle and refilled in like manner.
  • Parent or guardian must pick up unused medication at the end of the year or it will be discarded.
  • Life threatening conditions that warrant immediate medications such as inhalers and glucose tablets must be accessible to the student at all times.
