It is best for medication to be given at home, but we understand that is sometimes not possible. If a medication must be given during the school day, please follow these important procedures:
- A written doctor’s order is required for ALL medication. This includes all types of prescription treatments, over the counter medicines and herbal remedies. Medication Order forms can be obtained from the District website (or by clicking here: Medication Order Form ), or from the nurse.
- A responsible adult must bring medications to school and they must be in their original container. Once medications are delivered to school, they are safely stored in the nurse’s office and administered by the nurse as prescribed.
