Bernards Township Board of Education Policy 5330 requires that any medication including over-the-counter medications (this includes all medication, even cough drops!) requires a completed "Request to Administer Medication" Form that contains the following information:


  • Parental Permission
  • Physician's Order-Diagnosis, Medication, Dosage, Route, Time, Side Effects, Length of treatment, Activity restrictions.
  • Medication must be delivered in the original labeled bottle to the school nurse by parent/guardian.  Students may not bring medications to school on their person or intheir backpacks.
