Medications in school

If your child's doctor feels it is necessary for medication to be administered to your child in school, contact your child's school health office to obtain a "Medication Permission" form. You can download the form here.

To administer medication to students in school, the following steps must be taken for both prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.

  1. Obtain written order from your child's physician. The pharmacy label does not constitute a written order. Faxed requests from licensed physicians are acceptable. Verbal permissions from a physician to administer medication are not acceptable.

  2. Submit your written request that medication be administered to your child in school as ordered by his/her physician.

  3. Deliver your child's medication directly to the Health Office in the original, properly labeled container. (Parents/guardians should ask the pharmacist for two containers, one to remain at home and one at school. Medications CANNOT be carried by students on school buses or on their person during the school day.)
