Medication Taken at School

When your child’s physician prescribes medication to be administered at school, under state law, the dosage and times to be administered must be in writing from the doctor. An Authorization for Medication form is to be completed by the parents/guardians. The parent must personally bring the medication and the doctor’s written instruction(s) to the school office. Any medicine found on a child’s possession will be confiscated and the parent contacted. Office personnel will administer medication. We can only keep a one-month supply of medication, and it must be brought in the original container each time. In addition, any over-the-counter medication (such as Tylenol, Motrin, cough drops, etc.) must be dispensed through the Health Office, along with the appropriate Authorization for Medication form. Office personnel will maintain a written log of all medications administered.
