If a student must have medication while at school, the parent must obtain a medication consent form
, have the physician complete the form, and return it to the clinic.
Students are not allowed to bring medication to school (except a prescribed asthma inhaler or EpiPen—see Allergy section below), including over the counter medicines such as cough drops, creams, and lotions. A parent or guardian may bring in medication including over the counter medication, to be kept in the clinic with a completed medication form (available in student handbook appendix or on Parents & Clinic pages of school website). Medication containers must be clearly labeled in original packaging and will be secured in the clinic. All medication will be administered by the nurse. Teachers will never give medication.
A parent, guardian or designee can administer medication to their child in an emergency at school. Students with special needs will be required to have a completed Medical Impairment form available from the Counselor or School Nurse. A 504 plan will be completed.
