School Medication Policy & Parent Permission Form

There may be occasions where it is medically necessary to administer medication to students here at school.  Please be sure to read the District Medication Policy below.  PLEASE NOTE:  Students are NOT permitted to be in possession of any medication at any point during the school day.  This includes prescription and over-the-counter medications such as Advil, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, cold and flu medicine, cough drops, etc.  The only two exceptions are prescribed inhalers and Epi-pens.  In order for a child to carry their Epi-pen or inhaler, the parents must present their child's prescription to the school nurse so it can remain on file.  If your child requires prescription or over-the counter medications during the school day, please call the school nurse first.  She will discuss with you your options regarding medication administration here at school.  If it is determined that your child needs medication administered here at school, parents will need to bring the medication to school and hand deliver it to the school nurse.  Please do not give your child any type of medication to transport to school.  This is a violation of our district medication policy and could result in school discipline.
