If your child has medication prescribed by a physician, arrangements must be made with the school nurse for dispensing during school time. State law requires a Medical Authorization & Consent Form be completed and signed by the doctor and the parent. Children are not allowed to carry medication to school to take on their own (e.g., Tylenol, throat lozenges). All medications must be given to the school nurse with the signed consent form. A parent or guardian must supply the medication (prescription and nonprescription) in the original properly labeled pharmacy bottle with the child’s name. The school nurse will then make arrangements regarding the time the student will come to the health office to receive the medication. Parents are welcome to come to school to administer the medication. Epi-pens, Inhalers, and injectable medications require a separate authorization form. All medications must be hand-delivered to the health office by the parent/guardian.
