For your child’s safety, the school nurse and/or health aide will adhere to the following medication policy. All medication including over-the-counter medication must have original or prescription label on it and a doctors order. It is required parents sign a permission form to administer medication by school personnel. This form is required before any prescription OR non-prescription medication is administered. This includes all medications including over-the-counter products such as Tylenol, Advil, etc.
Although this may cause some inconvenience, we feel that this policy is best for the continued protection of your child, and must be followed. If we do not have your written permission, the medication will not be given. Permission forms can be obtained by contacting your school nurse or health aide or district website. Please note, students are not permitted to carry medication on their person or in their backpack---this includes cough drops.
In order for your child to receive any medication at school, please read the following:
Please contact the school nurse if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation.
