Dispensing of Medication
The faculty and staff of Lanier Middle is vitally interested in the health and welfare of all students. In an effort to dispense needed medications during school hours, it is important that parents/guardians provide medications in original containers with proper documentation. No medications will be given to students unless provided by parents/guardians.
Medicines – Prescription and Non‐Prescription
Need to be provided in original container along with Medication Administration Plan Form
(Required forms are available in the Lanier Middle School Clinic). Students are never to have medication in their possession while attending school. All medicines, (prescription and non‐prescription) are to be kept in the clinic and administered there. Students who are in possession of medication are subject to disciplinary action as outlined under Gwinnett County Public Schools Code of Conduct – Rule 7.
According to State Bill 472, effective 7/1/02, students may possess and self-administer this medication while at school or at a school sponsored activity only after a parent/guardian has completed a STUDENT ASTHMA ACTION PLAN. A physician will need to complete a portion of this form before the medication is brought to school. This form can be obtained from the clinic. Students will not be called out of class to take their medication. It is a student’s responsibility to visit the clinic at the prescribed time.
