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 labeled 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.
