Medications at School
Parents/guardians should make every effort to avoid the necessity of medicating
students during the school day and, whenever possible, parents/guardians should
develop medication schedules that provide for the administration of medication before
or after school hours.
When there is no reasonable alternative and students are required to take prescription
or non-prescription medication during school hours, with assistance from school
personnel, there must be on file in the school health office a “Consent & Request for
Medication Assistance During School Hours” form, signed by the parent/guardian and a
physician or authorized health care provider. Please note: there are specialized forms
required for students requiring anaphylaxis medication or insulin.
