Medication At School
We require parent and physician written permission to administer medication at school. This includes over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, eye drops, etc. Medication brought to school must be in an appropriately labeled container from the pharmacy. Medication will be administered by the school nurse or designated school employee.
Students with a prescription for inhalers for asthma, or an EpiPen for allergies, may carry these medications and self-administer at school as needed. We will still need written consent of the physician and the parent. It is highly recommended that parents provide two prescriptions of each medication, one to be carried by the child and one to be kept in the health office as a back up for an emergency.
Medication permission is effective for the school year and permission must be renewed each subsequent year. Contact the health office to obtain medication permission forms or download from this site.
