Medication and Health Needs
Medication of any type will not be given to a student except when the following conditions are met:
1. A written order from the physician who issued the prescription is given to school officials informing the school personnel of the type of medication and specifying the time at which the medication should be given.
2. The medication is brought to school in an appropriately marked container and given to school officials.
Prescription medications will be dispensed only with written parental consent and specific directions from a physician. Medications must be brought to school by the PARENT and the medication must be in the original container with prescribed directions for use when given to school officials. The school must have a physician’s order signed by the child’s doctor and the parent must also complete the required documentation consenting to the guidelines prescribed by the district before medication may be given to a student by school nurse or a designated school staff member.
