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.
- Allergy (Epi-Pen) Medication Authorization Form (PDF)
- Asthma Medication Authorization Form (PDF)
- Seizure Medication Authorization Form (PDF)
Submit a written note from your student’s prescribing physician stating:
- Name of medication
- 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.
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.
