Medication Policy

(Guidelines set by the State Department of Education) 

It is school policy not to allow children to have medication in the classroom. If needed on school time, medications will be kept in the nurse’s office and dispensed by her at the proper time. In addition: 

  1. The Parent/Guardian must provide a written request for the administration of medication. 

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

    • Diagnosis

    • Name of Medication

    • Dosage & time it is to be given

    • Is child to receive medication on half days?

    • May medication be withheld for field trips, as most often a nurse is not available?

    • If medication is for asthma, diabetes, or a life-threatening condition, may the student carry and self-administer the medication?

    • Has the student been instructed in how to administer medication?

  1. 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.

  1. 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. 

  1.  Please remember that over-the-counter drugs are also medications; i.e., cough drops, Tylenol, etc. These are to be addressed in the same manner as prescription drugs.
