Guidelines for Medications at School

  • All medication must be in the container in which it was dispensed by the prescribing health care provider or licensed pharmacist.

  • Any student needing to take medication during school hours must have a signed Medication Authorization form from the parent or guardian and a properly completed physician’s statement.

  • The School Nurse may not give over-the-counter medication unless prescribed by a health care provider. A Medication authorization form must be completed.

  • No verbal orders can be taken. Any changes in medication must also be in writing from the health care provider.

  • The authorization by the physician can be on a prescription pad or other form, as long as it has all the information required on the Medication authorization card. It can be attached to the card signed by the parent.

  • This form must be renewed each year or if the medication or dosage is changed.

  • Medications ordered three times a day or less, unless a time is specified, may not need to be taken at school. The medication might be given before school, after school, and at bedtime.

  • At the end of the school year, or if the medication is discontinued, the parent must pick up any remaining medication, or sign a release form. If the medication is not picked up by the specified date, it will be disposed of.
