Medication Policy
( Guidelines set by the State Department of Education)

It is school policy not to allow children to have medications in the classroom.  If medications need to be administered during school time, the medication will be kept in the Health Office and dispensed by the school nurse at the designated time(s).  In addition:

1. The parent/guardian must provide a written request for the administration of medication.

2. We must also have an original written order from your doctor for any medications that must be taken at school, including over the counter medications.  This order must include:

  • *Diagnosis
  • *Name of Medication
  • *Dosage and time it is to be given
  • *Is child to receive medication on half days?
  • *May the medication be withheld for field trips?
  • * If medication is an inhaler or EpiPen, may the child carry it and self-administer?

Call the nurse to obtain a form for EpiPen use in school.

3. All medication must be in the original pharmacy container properly labeled for the student.  Ask your pharmacist for the medication to be divided into two bottles completely labeled:  one for home and one for school.  Do not send medication in baggies, tissues, envelopes, etc., as it is against the law to dispense unlabeled medications.

4. Students are not allowed to carry medications on the bus or into school.  An adult must drop off the medication in the Main Office or in the Health Office during school hours.

5. Over the counter drugs must also be prescribed by your health care provider.
