Medications:Top of Page

An authorization for medication administration must be filled out and signed by both the parent/guardian and the physician in order for the health technician to administer any medications. This includes all over the counter medicine as well as prescription medications.  A student may also carry medication and self-administer (for inhalers or epinephrine auto-injectors only).Both the medications and the appropriate forms must be brought to the Health Office and logged in by a parent with the Health Tech (NOT SENT IN WITH THE STUDENT) before any will be dispensed. If the required forms are not on file, parents or guardians are permitted to come to school and dispense medication to their child in the Health Office.
