Medication Policy

Prescription Medications

Prescription medication should be brought to school by a parent/guardian and delivered to the office. The following guidelines apply to all medications given at school:

  • Only medication prescribed by a legal provider will be administered at school.
  •  A parent or legal guardian must provide written authorization.
  • Medication will be supplied in the original container with proper labeling including: student’s name, name of medication, dose of medication, directions for use, and date. Expired or improperly labeled medication will not be given.
  • Changes/discontinuation of prescription medication require immediate notification in writing from your child’s physician.

Over-the-Counter Medications

  • If permitted, all students will be allowed six doses of over the counter medication.  After six doses, parents/guardians will be asked to supply medications.
