Medications

Medication Policy

Medications are encouraged to be given at home whenever possible. There are circumstances, however, when medication needs to be given during the school day. If it is necessary for a student to receive medication at school, there are requirements that need to be followed:

*Parent/Guardian must provide a medication consent form signed by the parent and the student’s physician authorizing the administration of the medication at school.

*Parent/Guardian must provide prescription medication to the school in the original pharmacy container appropriately labeledĀ for the student.

*Parent/Guardian must provide non-prescription medication to the school in the original container.

*Medications, prescription and non-prescription, are not to be carried by the student unless there is a written agreement between the school district and the parent and authorized by the student’s physician.

Medication Consent Forms for school use are attached.
