What if my child needs medication during school hours?

When it is medically necessary for a student to take medicine during school hours, parents must do the following:

  • Provide a written order from the physician stating the name of the medicine, the dosage, and the time that it is to be administered.
  • Provide written permission from the parent to allow the appropriate staff member or the student to administer the medicine.
  • Deliver the medicine to the school office in the original prescription container, or, if it is an over-the-counter medication, in the original container with all warnings and directions intact.

Exceptions: Students who have been diagnosed with anaphylaxis may carry and self-administer emergency medications including auto-injectable epinephrine. The student must notify the school office secretary as soon as possible following the use of this medication. For breathing disorders, handheld inhaler devices may be carried for self-administration. In both instances, a parent or guardian must provide annual written documentation to authorize possession and self-administration. The student's name must be on the prescription label on the medication container or device.
