In order to protect the health and safety of all students, all medications administered during the school day must be brought to and administered in the Health Office. NO medication can be administered to any student without proper completion of the Medication Dispensing Form. The form must be completed for both prescription and over- the- counter medications. The form must be signed by the physician and parent/guardian. Students may not have medication in their possession during the school day. This district form is available on the CBSD website, under parent resources.
Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen may be given to students, with parent permission granted, when completing the Online Census Verification at the start of every school year.
Emergency medications such as inhalers and epinephrine: Students who require these medications are encouraged to request their physician write an order stating that the “students may carry and self-administer ”. This order should be written on the CBSD Medication Dispensing form. Central Bucks School District policy requires a Competency Check to also be completed by the student with the Certified School Nurse.
Medication Delivery to School: An adult must deliver all ADHD and controlled medications to the Health Office. These medications must be counted, recorded and signed for by both the adult delivering the medication and the nurse accepting the medication.
Non-controlled drugs may be brought to school by the student. Students should bring the medication to the Health Office upon arrival at school.
