Medication during school hours

If your child must take medication during school hours, a Medication During School Hours permission form must be completed.  Please make every effort to plan a medication schedule so that all medications, whenever possible, are taken at home, rather than at school.

A parent/guardian’s written permission is required when medication is sent to school.  Prescription and non-prescription medications sent to school must always be in the original container and stored in the nurse’s office. Students may carry asthma rescue inhalers, EpiPens, and diabetes supplies only with a physician’s order and demonstrated competency to self-administer these medications.

Nurses are assigned to all our schools.  However, a nurse is not present in every building at all times.

The nurse will supervise the taking of the medication if we have parental written permission and the physician’s written directions.

The parent/guardian, have these OPTIONS if you supply and wish us to supervise the taking of “over-the-counter” medications when a nurse is NOT in the building.

  • The parent may call the nurse and arrange a schedule when the nurse is in the building.
  • The parent may come to school and administer the medication.
