Medication may be administered during school hours when there is a properly completed “Authorization for the Administration of Medicine by School Personnel” form on file in the school nurse office. This form must be signed by an authorized provider and the student’s parent/guardian. All medications (prescription and over-the-counter) and supplements are subject to this requirement.
Medications should be delivered to the school nurse in the original, properly labeled, unopened container.
Medications should be brought to school and picked up by a responsible adult. Any medication not picked up within one week following termination of the order or by the last day of the school year, whichever comes first, will be destroyed.
