Medication Policy

  • In the event that your child is required to receive ANY medication at school, the following policy must be adhered to:
     
    1. 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.
    2. ALL medication must be in the original, prescription labeled container from the pharmacy.
    3. The prescribing doctor must provide written instructions to dispense the medication at school, including the time the medication is to be given.
    4. The parent must sign an medication permission slip.
     
    This policy applies to ALL medication, including over-the-counter medications, and cough drops.
