Medications

All student medication must be stored in the nurse’s office. Exemptions will be made when it is medically necessary for a student to carry medication, such as an inhaler for asthma.

 

Students who are required to take any type of medication during school hours must have on file medication authorization forms signed by the prescribing physician/practitioner and parent/guardian. All medication must be contained in a current pharmacy container labeled with student’s name, prescribers name, date, medication, dosage, and time to be given. Any change in type, frequency, or amounts of medication will require a new medication authorization form.

 

In the event circumstances make it impossible to fulfill the above procedure, and it is imperative that a student have the medication, it will be given for two days only. The parent/guardian must write or telephone this special request to the nurse.
