Administration of Medication

Students may need to take prescription or non-prescription medication during school hours.  A physician and parent note are required for all prescription medications, including inhalers. A parent note is required for non-prescription medications such as cough or pain medication given at the elementary or middle school levels and is kept in the health office.  Students may carry non-prescription medication at the high school level.  Medication must be in the original container with the following information: name of student, name of medication, directions for use including dosage, times, and duration to be given. Please do not send medication in baggies. Students at any age may carry ointment for dry lips.  If you need a Permission to Administer Medication form, please contact the health office where your child attends school or forms made be accessed on the district website under forms.
