Administration of Medication
For the safety of all students at our school, the following guidelines should be followed when requesting administration of medications at school:
- Only those medications required during school hours should be administered at school. Please check with your physician regarding the need for medications to be administered during school hours. Parents should check with their physician regarding the need for medications to be administered during school hours. Medications prescribed for three times daily can often be given before school, after school, and at bedtime. If you have any questions about this procedure, please call the school clinic.
- All medications, both prescription and over-the-counter must be accompanied by a completed Administration of Medication Request form (available by request from the school clinic) and brought to the school clinic by an adult. Students may not transport medications to school.
- All medications must be in an original child-proof container. Prescription medications must be in their labeled prescription bottle. School staff will only administer medication according to the directions on the label.
- Any medications remaining at the end of the school year must be picked up or school staff will dispose of them.
- Students may only carry medication as prescribed by law with the required documentation. Please check with our school clinic worker if your child needs to carry emergency medications with them.
Some health conditions may require that additional documentation be kept on file at your local school.
Please request and complete any forms that pertain to your child and return them to your school.
