Taking Medicine at School

  • Children sometimes need medication during the school day. At school, we are directed by specific rules regarding the dispensing of medication.

    The following conditions must be in place:

    • A written or faxed order from the physician is provided- even for over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol or cough drops.

     

    • A new order is required each school year.

     

    • Written permission from the parent or guardian is provided.

     

    • The medication must be in the pharmacy filled prescription bottle or the original store packaging.

     

    • The medication must be brought into school by an adult.

     

    NO CHILD IS ALLOWED TO CARRY OR TRANSPORT MEDICATION
    OF ANY KIND TO OR FROM SCHOOL.
