No students are allowed to carry medications of any kind without permission of the parent and school nurse.
Students taking prescription medications during school hours will need to have a
Prescription Medication Administration Release Form
filled out in its entirety
prior to the start of school each school year.
No medication will be allowed or given at school until this form is submitted, even if the medication was
given at school the previous year. The form can be found by grade level - click on expanding menu.
Prescription Medications administered during school hours need to be in the original prescription container and in a Ziploc bag labeled with the child’s name, grade, parents' names, two emergency phone numbers and a current picture of the child. It is best to take the prescription medication form with you to your physical since the form must be signed by your physician.
OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION
The health and emergency form parents complete online during registration covers the following over-the-counter medications. Parents will need to submit this form only once during the school year.
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
- Ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil)
- Decongestant (Sudafed)
- Antihistamines (Benadryl, Claritin, Zyrtec)
Other over-the-counter medications not
listed above require a parent’s additional consent through the Medication Administration Release Form. Medications must be in the original container and in a bag properly labeled with the student’s name, grade, parents' names and phone numbers.
It is to the discretion of the school nurse or designated health provider to administer any over the counter medications. It is best to give any medication at home prior to arrival at school. The first dose of any medication should never be given at school. ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE PICKED UP BY THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR OR THEY WILL BE DISCARDED.
