General Medication Administration Information

  • Medications for administration at school are kept in the Health Office and administered by trained school personnel. Medications will be administered during school hours, as necessary, to provide appropriate educational services. Parents/guardians are encouraged to administer medications at home if at all possible. Medication administration at school requires the following:

    •  Signed parent medication permission form- for both over the counter and prescription medications. 
    •  Pharmacy label or doctor's written prescription for prescription medications.
    •  Medication in original labeled container.

    Students with diabetes, asthma, and/or severe allergies occasionally require more immediate access to medications for self-administration than the school health office can provide. Parents or guardians of students with asthma, anaphylaxis or diabetes should contact the school nurse for guidance in completing the requirements of self management of their medical condition.
