Medications in School

  • If your child needs medications in school either for the entire year or for a short time, the following steps must be followed:

    *A doctor's signature either on the district form or on a prescription pad from the doctor

    *A parent signature requesting that the medication be given at school

    *An original prescription bottle with the students name and the name of the medication

    *If an over-the- counter medication, the original container with the students name written in clear, legible writing

    *If the medication is a controlled substance, such as Ritalin, a parent must bring the medication into school, otherwise the student may bring it to the nurse as soon as the student arrives to school

    *Acetominophen and Ibuprofen may be given to the student with an electronic parent signature provided on the census form
