Medication: My child needs to take Medication at School
- Last Updated: 10.22.13
What procedures do I need to follow?
Students are permitted to take medication at school ONLY when it is deemed absolutely necessary and only under the supervision of school health staff. A form titled, Parent's Request to Administer Medication At School (PDF) must be on file for each medication. No medication can be accepted by health services personnel or allowed to be self-administered under the supervision of health staff without the receipt of the appropriate medication authorization form completed by the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) and authorized prescriber in its entirety without deletion or alteration. For the safety of students, school health services reserves the right to refuse to accept, administer, or supervise self-administration of any medication if these procedures are not followed.
