For the safety of all students at our school, below are several guidelines and necessary forms for medications and health plans.

 

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 medicines to be administered during school hours.  Medications prescribed for three times daily often can be given before school, after school, and at bedtime.

 

All medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, must be accompanied by Administration of Medication Request 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.  Pharmacists can give a duplicate labeled container with only the school dose.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to inform school of any changes and update medication forms.

Medications stored in envelopes, baggies, etc., will not be administered.

ALL MEDICATIONS NEED TO BE ADMINISTERED ACCORDING TO DIRECTIONS ON LABEL.
