MedicationsTop of Page

An Authorization for Medication Administration at School form must be filled out and signed by both the parent/guardian and the physician in order for the Health Technician to be permitted to administer any medications to your child.  This includes all over-the-counter medicine, as well as prescription medications.  Both the medications and the appropriate forms must be brought to the Health Office and logged in by a parent with the Health Tech (NOT SENT IN WITH THE STUDENT) before any will be dispensed.
 
Student may carry and self-administer inhaled asthma medications and/or use an Epi-Pen provided the physician and parent forms have been completed and reside wit the school Health Tech.  Staff will use the following guidelines:
  • Students able to self-administer medications as confirmed by physician.
  • Parent/guardian must consent to self-administration of medication.
  • If the student is irresponsible in its use, the inhaler may be kept at the Health Tech's office.
  • Provide a release for school staff to consult with student's physician regarding the medication and release the district and school staff from civil liability in the event of an adverse reaction to medication.
  • Annual renewal of all prescriptions to be given at school.
Please note:  if your child wears braces or contact lenses, we do not have "wax" or "saline solution" available, so they should be prepared to carry it with them. 
 
Parents/guardians are permitted to come to the school and dispense medicine to their children in the Health Office as needed it the required forms are not on file.
