Medication Policy:

  1. A parent/guardian must deliver medications to school with an approved healthcare provider signed form (Parent Request to Administer Medication in School).
  2. Any remaining medication must be picked up by the parent/guardian at the end of the school year or it will be properly disposed.
  3. Medication must come in a pharmacy prepared, labeled bottle.
  4. Discretionary medications: A small supply of over the counter medications (Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, Antacid tablets, Diphenhydramine, cough drops) are kept in the health suite. The administration of these medicines requires a signed parent/guardian Consent for Administration of Discretionary Medication form.
  5. All other over-the-counter medications must also be accompanied by an approved healthcare provider signed form.
  6. In the absence of a healthcare provider signed form, a parent/guardian may come to school and administer medication.
