Medication Policy

If your child should require medication during the school day this policy is to be followed:                                            
  • A written request, signed by the physician, dentist, or healthcare provider which indicates the name of the student, diagnosis, medication, dosage, time of administration and date to be discontinued.
  • A written request signed by the parent/guardian authorizing the school nurse to dispense the medication as specified by the physician, dentist, or health provider.

The medication, in its original container, must be delivered to the school nurse or staff member by the parent / guardian or responsible adult.  No medication should be carried by a student.  The temptation to share with a friend or tamper with the medication in some way is a real danger.  Therefore, any medication found in a child's possession will be confiscated and returned to the parent/guardian.

If a child needs to take over the counter medication, such as Tylenol, cold or cough syrup, etc. the school nurse must have written authorization from the physician, dentist, or other healthcare provider and the parent/guardian.
