Medication Administration

If at all possible, it is best to take medication at home

To have medication administered at school, the following must occur:

  1. The treating physician must fill out the “School Medication Administration Form.”  This includes both prescription and non-prescription medication.  Clear instructions regarding the name of medication, dosage, time of day, and how often it should be given must be included on the authorization form.
  2. Parent/Guardian must sign the bottom section of the authorization form.
  3. Medication must be sent to school in pharmacy-labeled bottles with the appropriate dispensing information.  Over-the-counter medication must be in its original labeled container with the ingredients listed.  The student’s name must be affixed to the container.
  4. A new medication authorization form must be submitted with each new school year, and any time there is a change in dosage or a change of medication
