Medication At School
Medication At School

 

  • All medication to be given at school needs a physician’s order, signed by the physician and signed and dated by the parent/guardian, stating the name of the medication, dose, dosage interval (how often the medication can be given), and side effects of the medication.

  • This includes all over the counter medication (including Tylenol, aspirin, cough drops, throat lozenges, eye drops, ear drops, and ointments.)

  • The orders are valid for the duration of the school year, meaning that each new school year, the medication orders need to be renewed.

  • The only medications students may routinely carry in their backpacks are Epi-pens and inhalers. These emergency medications need a doctor’s order and need doctor’s approval for the student to carry these emergency medications.
  • Medication should be brought to school by an adult and checked into the health room. If you have questions, please contact us.
