Medication at School
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, during school hours, you must provide the following:
Medical Authorization Form
A completed Authorization for Administration of Medication at School form signed by both the parent and the physician. Additional forms are required for asthma, allergy (Epi-Pen), and seizure medications.
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 our school office for the fax number.
Submit a note giving permission for your student to receive the prescribed medication at school.
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.
