Medication at School

  • Process for Prescription & Non-Prescription Medications

    When possible, parents and physicians are urged to have student medication administered outside of the school day.

    If your student needs to receive medication, either prescription or non-prescription (Tylenol, cough drops, etc.), during school hours, you must provide a medical authorization form, physician note, parent/guardian note, and the medication in its original container.

    Medical Authorization Form

    Submit the required form(s) for your student’s medication complete with parent/guardian and physician signatures.

    Additional forms are required for asthma, allergy, and seizure medications.

    Physician Note

    Submit a written note from your student’s prescribing physician stating:

    • Name of medication
    • Dosage
    • Time and dates to be given
    • The reason it must be given during school hours
    • Possible side effects

    We will accept faxed authorization from a health care provider. Please call your school’s office for the fax number. 

    Parent/Guardian Note

    Submit a note giving permission for your student to receive the prescribed medication at school. 

    Provide Medication in its Original Container

    Medication must be brought to school by a responsible adult in the originally labeled container with the student’s name. If you are unable to bring the medication to school, please call our school nurse before sending it.
