Medications in School
All students must have written permission by the physician/health care provider and a parent in order to receive medications in school. Medication forms must be kept on file in the nurse's office. All medications must be delivered, in the original container, to the nurse by an adult. Students are not permitted to transport medication to and from school. All medication is kept in the nurse's office. This includes over the counter medications and prescriptions. The only exceptions are for medications that may be taken for life-threatening emergencies, if approved by the health care provider and parent. Students are permitted to carry and use their own asthma inhalers and epinephrine injectors (Epi Pen and Auvi Q) only. Please let the nurses know if your child is taking any medications at home.
