If your student requires medication during the school day, we ask that you follow these rules to ensure your student receives their medication safely.
- Each medication requires an authorization form. These forms can be obtained at any school office or on the school website.
- Prescribed medications require directions and signature of a physician.
- Over-the-counter medication authorization forms need completed and signed by a parent/guardian and must include directions for giving the medication.
- All medication must be brought to the school by a responsible adult and NOT sent in the child’s backpack or with another student.
- All medications must be in the original container with the student’s name on it. Prescribed medications must have a current pharmacy label.
- Any change in medications or directions for giving medication will require a new authorization form.
- Students who are responsible and wish to carry their own inhaler or emergency medication may do so with a medication authorization form completed by a physician and signed by the parent/guardian.
- A new medication authorization form is needed for each school year.
