In the event that your child is required to receive ANY medication at school, the following policy must be adhered to:
- Only the school nurse or parent can dispense medication, with the exception of inhalers or an epinephrine auto-injector, which can be self-administered when indicated with physicians order.
- ALL medication must be in the original, prescription labeled container from the pharmacy.
- The prescribing doctor must provide written instructions to dispense the medication at school, including the time the medication is to be given.
- The parent must sign an medication permission slip.
This policy applies to ALL medication, including over-the-counter medications, and cough drops.
