At times it may be necessary for your child to take medication at school for the treatment of an illness. Medications that are ordered to be taken less than four (4) times a day can and should be taken at home. However, if medication must be taken on a specific time schedule during school hours, the school nurse may give the medication under the following school policy.
To administer prescription medication the school nurse must:
-have written permission form the parent
-have a written order from the physician
-receive the medication in a correctly labeled bottle from a pharmacy.
All medications must be stored and taken in the Health Office. Exceptions must be discussed with Health Office staff and approved in writing by the parent and physician.
