Medication

MEDICATION


All medication must be brought to the Nurse and administered out of the Health Office under the supervision of the Nurse.  Under no circumstances should a student possess or ingest prescription or over-the-counter medication in a location other than the Health Office.  Any student who violates this rule will face disciplinary action.

Prescription:  If it is recommended that a student take medications during the school day, a written authorization form (available from the Nurse’s Office) must be signed by the prescribing physician and a parent/guardian. It is recommended that a parent/guardian bring all prescription medication (including short-term medication) to school. If this is not possible, a delivery of medication form is available in the Nurse’s Office and should be completed by the parent/guardian. Medication must be brought to school in the container labeled by the pharmacist. It is recommended that you not bring in more than a 30-day supply of medication at a time. Students with asthma may carry their prescription inhalers with them, provided the authorization form has been completed and sent to the Nurse’s Office.

Over-The-Counter:  For safety reasons students are not permitted to carry medication with them during the school day. All over-the-counter medications should be stored in the Nurse’s Office. Students found to be carrying any medication on school grounds will face disciplinary action. No over-the-counter medications will be administered to students without parental permission given on a signed emergency sheet.
