Ideally, medication of any kind is given at home. However, a parent/guardian wishing to have medicine administered to a child at school must follow these procedures:
For a child to take prescribed medication during the school day, a parent/guardian must complete the Prescription Medication Permission Form(A copy is included in the annual student handbook, is available in the office, orclick on the link below).
No medication will be administered until the school receives the completed form. The medication must be brought in the original container appropriately labeled by a pharmacy or physician.
All medication must be kept in and dispensed through the health office. Students may notkeep medication in their backpacks or desks.
On the Annual Health Update form sent home at the start of each school year, parents are asked to indicate whether or not they give permission for the school nurse or designee to administer over-the-counter medication (Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, Tums) to their child(ren). Please fill out this annual form (see link below) completely for each child and notify the school office of any changes during the year.
