• Medication at School

     All medication, including over-the-counter medication, must be kept in the nurse's office. When possible, student medication should be scheduled for administration in the home.
     
    Prescription Medication:  The nurse may administer prescription medication but it must be in the original, properly labeled container along with a written request from the parent (see link below to the AISD medication permission form). No blister packs, pills in plastic bags, or expired medication will be accepted.
     
    Over-the-Counter Medication:  The nurse may administer non-prescription medication when it is in the original, properly labeled container along with a written request from the parent (see link below to the AISD medication permission form). No blister packs, pills in plastic bags, or expired medication will be accepted. In addition:
     
           **No herbal supplements or homeopathic medications will be administered by the nurse
           **Aspirin-containing medications will not be given without a physician order
           **Any student requesting to take an over-the-counter medication more than three (3) times per school week may be required to submit a signed physician authorization stating the name of the medication, dosage, and number of days it is required.
     
     
    For more information regarding medication at school, please review the Student Handbook.
