All prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications must be FDA-approved and will be kept in the school health office. Your child may not carry any medication at school. All prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications must be in the original container with the current pharmacy or package, labeled correctly with the most current date, student’s name, dosage, frequency and match the current doctor’s orders on file with the health office. At no time will medications be transported by a student. Any change in prescription medication, dosage or time to be given must be in written form from the parent with an accompanying doctor’s order.
Written permission with instructions from the parent/guardian are required for all prescription and OTC medications. Permission forms are available at your school's nurse's office and inn the area below marked Health Services Forms.
Your child may not carry any medication at school, with the exception of inhalers, diabetic supplies and epinephrine (Epipen). These emergency medications may be carried only with written permission from your child's physician and from the parent/guardian.
Students in Prep-K through 4th grade will keep emergency medications in the nurse’s office unless we have a physician’s note indicating the medication should be carried by the student. Students administering emergency medications outside of the nurse’s office will report to the nurse that the medication was administered.
Return of Medications to Parent/Guardian
Medications must be picked up in the health office by a parent, guardian, or designee who is at least 18 years old and with written permission from the parent/guardian. Medications (with the exception of emergency medications with permit to carry) CANNOT be sent to school or sent home with a student. Failure to comply with this may result in disciplinary action for your child.
