- Medication must be kept in the clinic in the original container.
- If the medication is to be administered for more than one day, an Administration of Medication Request Form must be completed.
- Students may not have over-the-counter medications in their possession and may not share medications of any kind with fellow students.
Students requiring ANY medication at school must have a parent bring the medication and documentation to the school clinic (this includes Ibuprofen, Tylenol, eye drops, cough drops, etc.). All medication is stored and administered by the school clinic worker. If students need to be given medication, we cannot give it to them unless we have written permission.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND MEDICATION TO SCHOOL WITH YOUR CHILD.
Taking medications during school hours is discouraged. Parents are asked to arrange medication schedules so that it is not necessary for medication to be taken at school. However, if the physician recommends such administration, then the parent must complete the Administration of Medication Request Form and return it to the school. It should be updated yearly. Prescription medications must be in the original prescription container, brought to school by the parent/guardian and must be housed in the clinic. Students may not have prescription medications in their possession or share these medications with others.
CHILDREN SHOULD NOT TRANSPORT MEDICATION TO SCHOOL.
