Medication Reminders

A new medication administration request will be required each school year or with any change in the previous medication administration request (i.e., a change in the original time interval or dosage amount to be given).

All medications to be administered or kept at school for longer than 15 days must be accompanied by a written request signed and dated by the prescribing physician and the parent/guardian.

A parent note gives the school nurse permission to dispense the medication according to the label on the original container. The medication must be age appropriate. The recommended dosage from the manufacturer will be administered for an over the counter drug.

All medication will need to be picked up by a parent/guardian before the last day of school or the medication will be discarded.
