Students in Elementary, Middle, and High school are not allowed to have any medication in their possession for safety reasons. This includes pain relievers such as aspirin, cough drops, etc. If it is essential that medication be administered during school hours on an ongoing basis, this accommodation can be provided. However, for the protection of all concerned, it is necessary for the school office to have specific information and signatures prior to administering medication. All medication, including nasal sprays, inhalers, topical ointments, medicated eye drops, antibiotics etc., should be brought to the office. All medication should be in the original container, and prescription medications should bear the name of the student that the medication is for. Parents / guardians must provide detailed instructions in the form of a note, or completed medication authorization log entry (available at the office) to accompany medicines. This documentation should include the name of the student, dosage, and timing. The school cannot administer any dosage that does not conform to recommended dosage directions on the container. The office will administer the medication as directed.
Safety is critical in handling preschool medications. Parents are required to bring all medications in a zip-lock bag, which should be handed to the teacher on duty. The school recommends that the timing of medication be adjusted to coincide with lunch time, if possible. Once the medication has been administered, it will be documented on the Medication Authorization Log. It is the responsibility of parents to collect the medicine from the teacher at pick-up time. At no time should medicines be placed in a child’s lunchbox.
Grades 1 and up
Students / Parents are required to bring all medication to the front office. All medication should be labeled with the student’s name. Students are not permitted to have any medication in their possession during school hours (including cough drops, eye drops, etc.).
