Administration of Medication
For the safety of all students at our school, these guidelines should be followed:
Administration of prescription and over-the-counter medicine (even for a short period of time) is discouraged.
Parents should check with their physician regarding the need for medications to be administered during school
hours. Medications prescribed for three times daily often can 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 the Medication Administration Form
and brought to the school clinic by an adult.
All medications must be in the ORIGINAL CHILD PROOF CONTAINER. Prescription medications must be
in the labeled prescription bottle. Medications stored in envelopes, baggies, etc., will not be administered.
Medications must be picked up at the end of the year, or the school will dispose of them.
Some health conditions may require that additional documentation be kept on file at your local school.
Please complete any forms that pertain to your child and return them to your school.
