Medication at School
Students may not bring medication, including cough drops, to school without authorization. Medical authorization forms may be obtained from the school office and must be renewed each school year. This form must be signed by both a parent/guardian and the physician.
When a medical authorization form is properly filled out (must be signed by parent/guardian and physician, it will be placed on file with the school) the student may take the necessary prescribed medication at school under the supervision of the clerk, a school nurse, the office manager, or the principal.
The school cannot administer aspirin or other medication that can be purchased over the counter. Students may never keep medication in their lockers, backpacks, or lunch boxes. Students or parents/guardians are not to ask teachers to keep medications in their desk. Because student safety is a prime concern, no non-prescribed medication should be brought on campus.
