Medications At School

Medication Forms - this page has forms for medication at school consent, asthma, allergies, and diabetes.

Medications brought to the school office:

· If you wish to have the school administer medication to your son/daughter, you must bring it in the original or pharmacy labeled container, properly marked with the name of the student, name of the medication, dosage, and the time to be given.

· It is the parents/guardians’ responsibility to provide all over-the-counter medications to the school.

Medication Administration Consent Form:

This form must accompany both prescription and over-the-counter medication.

· Both parent/guardian and physician must sign the Medication Administration Consent From for administration of any prescription medication during the school day.

· For over-the-counter (non-prescription) medication to be administered during the school day, only the parent/guardian signature is required.

· Only a limited supply of medication should be brought to school at any one time.

· Parent/guardian is responsible for personally delivering all prescription medication to the school office personnel/school nurse.

· Controlled substances should be counted and the number of pills received documented on the medication form each time medication is brought to school.

No Medication will be administered by school personnel unless this policy is followed. If a child brings medication to school without the appropriately signed form or non-matching prescription bottle, the school will notify the parent or guardian that the medication will not be given until the necessary signatures or labels are provided. In the interim, the parent will be invited to administer the medication to their child at school.

Medications kept by the students:

According to school policy, medications (both prescriptions and over-the-counter) are generally not kept by students during the school day. However, special health concerns may warrant a change in procedure (i.e. inhalers/epi-pens).

Information to consider:

· Discuss the times of medication to be given with your physician. It may be possible to regulate the dosage so that the medication could be given while your child is t home.

· Please contact the school nurse at any time with health or medication concerns.
