Medications At School
A student who requires medication during the course of the school day must have written permission from both his/her parent or guardian and physician, detailing the medication, method of administration, amount, and time it is to be given.
The medication must be brought to the school office in its original container, with the correct dosage, administration information, and student’s name printed on the label. A new medication form must be completed each school year.
Medication forms can be accessed for each school site via the links below and are available in the school office.
