• Medication Policy
     

     Students are not permitted to have medication in their possession while at school (including cough drops, etc.).

     Medication of any kind (prescription or over-the-counter) can-not be administered to a child unless a medication form is completed in the Front Office by a parent or guardian.  Sending a note with the medication is not sufficient to allow us to give out the medication.  The following regulations must be strictly adhered to:

     

    • Each medication must have a separate medication form filled out by the parent/guardian.  The dosage amount (e.g., milligrams) must appear on the card.

    • All medication including over the counter must be accompanied by the medical forms signed by a physician.                        
    •  All medication must be in the original container, including inhalers, pain relievers (i.e., Tylenol), cough drops, etc.

    • Prescription medication must have a current label.

    •  If the doctor has given you a sample, a letter from the doctor must accompany the medication stating he/she has prescribed it to your child.  The medication and dosage (e.g., milligrams), child’s name, and quantity/time of day to administer the medication must be in the letter.

    • Completed medication form must exactly match the prescription label on the medication container.

    • Medication forms must state the time of day the dosage of medication is to be administered (i.e., do not write 2 times a day, write 10:00 am and 2:00 pm or whatever the appropriate times are).

    • Students are not allowed to transport prescription medication to and from school.  This medication must be delivered by an adult 18 years or older.

     

     Failure to completely follow the above guidelines will result in medication not being administered.
