Guidelines for Medication at School — Click to View
- Medication forms are available in any school office and on the district website.
- The district does not stock any over-the-counter medication for students. Any medication a student might need during the day should be brought to school by the parent.
- Medication should never be sent in a baggie, envelope or other unmarked container.
- If a student needs a medication for 2 weeks or less (e.g., antibiotic or pain medication for post-operative pain), the medication should be brought to school by the parent in the original container. A Medication Administration Form must be completed and signed by the parent.
- A Medication Administration Form must be completed for each daily, long-term prescription medication that is to be administered by the school staff and must be signed by the physician and parent. (Exception: If students have an Emergency Health Care Plan, Asthma Plan or Diabetic Plan completed, the physician orders and parent permission will be included; no additional forms are needed.)
- A Medication Administration Form must be completed for each non-prescription medication that is to be administered by the school staff and signed by the parent.
- Any student is allowed to carry their own medication, if it is deemed necessary by the physician. A Medication Use Form must be completed and signed by the physician and parent if the student is in grades K-8, and by the parent for students in grades 9-12. The medication must be in the original container and, with the exception of inhalers and insulin, limited to the amount needed by the student for one day.
- If the student will carry their own medication, but a back-up will be kept in the office for school staff to provide, both the Medication Use Form and the Medication Administration Form must be completed.
