Students With Medications

Medication

The form, “Request for Medication to Be Given at School,” must be completed, signed by the physician and parent, and be on file in the school before prescription medication can be administered by the school nurse assistant or trained staff. The school is required by the state to have a doctor’s signed order, the parent’s signature and a properly labeled container in order to give prescription medication at school. Please check with your physician regarding the necessity of giving medication during school hours. Prescription medication must be in the original container labeled by the pharmacist. Over the counter (non-prescription), medication supplied by the parent in the original container may be given only with a parent’s signature on the permission form. This includes cough drops. Forms are available in the school office and at most physician’s offices. New forms must be completed each school year or when the doctor has changed the prescription. If it is necessary to send liquid medication to school, please send a dosage spoon with the medication. A parent must bring the medication to school and medications, which are not completely used, or picked up by the parent, will be discarded at school. Students may not carry medication of any type to class.
