Our Medication policy encourages parents to administer all medications at home; however, it is recognized that children with special needs, chronic illnesses, and specific disabilities may require medication during the school day.
We, therefore, require a physician's approval and a written parental consent to accompany all medications both prescription and non-prescription (over-the-counter). All Medication must be brought to the school by parents / guardians and it will be kept locked in the nurse's office. The bottle should be clearly labeled with the child's name, name and strength of the medication, drugstore where purchased, name of the prescribing physician, and the time and amount of mediation to be given.
The written statement from the family physician must be brought in each September for those students who are on continuous daily medication.
