School personnel may administer medication to pupils only when
the school has received
an “Authorization for Administration of Medication by School Personnel Form” If your child is receiving medication during school hours, please come to the school office for a form. No medication, including over-the-counter medications, shall be allowed on a school site or administered to any pupil without a document from a licensed physician and the parent/guardian of the pupil.
All medication to be administered by school personnel must be in the original prescription or over-the-counter container. The parent/guardian of a pupil must bring the medication to the school office. All medication will be kept in a locked cabinet in the nurse’s room, except those medications that a physician and parent/guardian request in writing that the pupil can carry (i.e., inhalants for asthma or Epi-Pens for severe allergies).
We recommend that students keep their asthma inhalers in the school office, as classroom access will be limited during recess and lunchtimes.Please see medication form for more information.
