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.
The nurse may administer prescription medication when it is in the original, properly labeled container, along with a signed, Medication Request Form from the parent. No blister packs, plastic bags, or expired medication will be accepted. The nurse may also administer non-prescription medication when it is in the original, properly labeled container, and provided by the parent with a signed Medication Administration Request Form. Any student request to take an over-the-counter medicine more than three (3) times per school week is required to submit a signed doctor's authorization stating the name of the medication, dosage, and number of days to be given.
For more information regarding medication at school, please review the Student Handbook.
