Medications at School
BEGINNING OF SCHOOL YEAR 2019-20:
ALL medication administration authorizations and health plans are good for one school year only and must be renewed annually. If your child needs a health plan or to take medication during the school day for the school year 2019-2020 (this includes any prescription, over the counter medications or inhalers used at school, during team sports practices or after school activities), please download the appropriate form from the district website. Forms may also be picked up in your school’s office. Have your health care provider complete the form before school starts in the fall. Parents/Guardians must also sign all forms. Bring the completed medication authorization, health plan, and the medication in the original over the counter or labeled prescription container when school begins in the fall. Medications cannot be accepted from students.
DIABETES, LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGIES, SEVERE ASTHMA, AND SEIZURES: Health plans and emergency medication for Diabetes, Life-Threatening Allergies, Severe Asthma & Seizures must be at school before the first day of the new school year, September 5, 2019. School office staff can begin accepting these items in August. School nursing staff will be available starting August 26, 2019. Students with life-threatening conditions will be excluded from school until the signed health plan and medication are at school. If your student has diabetes, your school nurse will contact you to set up a meeting prior to the first day of school to establish the required diabetes health plan. Current healthcare provider’s orders from the most recent diabetes checkup will be required.
