Our Medication Policy encourages parents to administer all medications at home. However, it is recognized that children with chronic illnesses, specific disabilities, and chronic conditions may require medication be administered during the school day.

In these instances, it is required that a physician's orders accomany all medication both prescription and non-prescription (over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Advil, cough syrup etc.)

All medication should be brought to the school by the parent and delivered to the Nurse's Office. 

Prescription medication must be in the pharmacy container, clearly labeled with the child's name, name of medication, pharmacy where prescription was filled, name of the prescribing physician and the time and amount of medication to be given. Your pharmacy will give you an extra-labeled container for school if needed.

Over the counter medication must be in its original container. Please do not bring medication to school in plastic bags or envelopes-the nurse cannot accept these. No child of any age is permitted to carry medication in school, with the exception of inhalers for which a special form must be completed.

This policy is consistent with the standards and practices of nursing and the policy of our school district. It is also a safety precaution for the well being of your child.
