Administration of medication is permitted at school when medically necessary
and under the direct supervision of appropriate staff members. Students are
not allowed to carry any medications in their backpacks or in their pockets for
self-administration, with the exception of rescue inhalers if permitted by their
physician. Medication should be given outside of school hours whenever possible.
Before any medication may be given at school, these guidelines must be followed:
1. A Medication Administration Form must be filled out.
2. Parent or Legal Guardian portion of the form must be filled out and signed.
3. Physician portion must be completed and signed for all prescription medications.
4. All medications must be brought to the school by the parent in the original container
and appropriately labeled with the student’s name.
