Medications

Only prescription medication will be dispensed or stored in the health office.  A written request from a physician is required for all non-prescription medicine given at school.  No medication will be kept at school unless it meets the established guidelines for dispensing medications and is FDA approved. 

Students will NOT be allowed to carry their own medication with the exception of life saving medications such as inhalers or Epi-Pens, for which a doctor's statement is required.  The form is available in the nurse's office, or under the Forms tab here on the web site, and must be renewed annually.  Students are required to communicate with the nurse when they take those medications so that if additional care is needed, the nurse will be aware of the situation. 

Under no circumstance is a student to bring unmarked medication to school.  Students must take all medication directly to the nurse.  All daily medications will be left in the nurse's office.   Students are NOT allowed to transport medications on the bus.  A parent must transport the medication to and from the school.  Parents must pick up any remaining mediation.  

The nurse will give no over the counter medication such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, cough drops or cough syrup, without a doctor's order.  Over the Counter forms are available in the nurse's office and in the Forms section here on website.  The form must be signed yearly.  

Please contact your school nurse with any questions.
