Medications

  •  

    Prescription and over-the counter medication can be given at school if it is deemed necessary that medication be given during school hours. No herbal or homeopathic medications or vitamins may be given at school. Students may not self-administer medications. Prescription medication must be in its original container with the student's name on the prescription label. The medication must be current. A permit to administer medication must be on file and must include:

    • Student name
    • Name of medication
    • Amount and time to be given
    • Discontinue date
    • Parent/Guardian signature

    The parent's instruction for administration cannot be in conflict with the prescription label. Over-the-counter medication that is kept at school for the entire year needs to have a physician note attached and the condition specified for which the medication is needed.
