If your child needs to have medication(s)/treatment(s) given during the school day, State Regulations and School Board Policy require that you and your doctor provide written permission for administration of both prescribed and over-the-counter medication(s) or treatment(s).
(Medication refers to only those products which have been approved by the "Food and Drug Administration" (FDA) for use as a drug.)
Prescribed medications must arrive in a container with the original, unaltered prescription label attached. The label must display all legal information required for a pharmacist to dispense a prescription medication such as valid issue and expiration dates, the patient's name, the medication name and dosage instructions and the doctor's name.
Over-the-counter medications must arrive in the original store-issued container. Please take the time to label the container with your child's full name and birth date, the date you send the medication to school and the dosage prescribed by the doctor.
The medication/treatment authorization must be completed entirely and accompany any medication (either prescribed or over-the-counter) to be given to your child in school. The form must be signed by a parent/legal guardian and the prescribing doctor. Staff will not be able to administer medications to your child without this written consent.
A parent/legal guardian or an authorized adult must hand carry medications to the Health Room. The quantity of each medication will be verified by the health room staff upon receipt. It will be the parent's/guardian's responsibility to keep the health room supplied with adequate doses of medication. Do not send medications to school with your child.
Thank you for assisting us to provide safe medication/treatment administration for your child during the school day.
