Medications at School


  • For students who take medications at school

    If it is necessary for a student to take medicine at school, the procedure is as follows:

    1. A school medication form must be signed by both the health care provider and the parent. These forms are good for one school year only and must be renewed each school year. 

     
    2. The medicine must be in a container from the pharmacy that includes name of student, medication, dosage and directions for use. Medication at school must be kept in the main office with the school secretarial staff. EpiPens and inhalers can be kept with the student if both the parent and health care provider give consent, provide an emergency action plan and provide the medication form and medication for the student. For self carry and self administration, the parent must sign the liability waiver on the medication administration form. 

    3. The student must go to the school secretary/ receptionist to receive the medication. No other medication is to be carried by students without special clearance through the nursing staff.
