Medications at School

Our school medication policy states that medications are to be given by the nurse to a student only with the written prescription of a physician and the written request of a parent. All medications sent to the school must be properly labeled by the pharmacy that dispenses the medication, with the name of the student, name of the physician, name of the medication, dosage, and time to be dispensed.

Over-the-counter medications (Tylenol, ibuprofen, cough syrup, etc.) must be in the original package/bottle. A written prescription from the physician must be on file to dispense any prescription medication OR over-the-counter medication to your child. Please complete the Medication Authorization form found on this page, obtain signatures, and return the form to the school nurse. This information needs to be on file before any medications can be given to your child during school. All information will be kept confidential.
