Medication Guidelines

Parents have the primary responsibility for the administration of medication to their children. The school board, therefore, requests that medications be administered at home BEFORE or AFTER school. If you choose to have your child self medicate during school hours, the guidelines listed below must be followed:

  1. All medication must be in the unopened/sealed, original store-bought package.
  2. The package must be of a small size – no more than 24 tablets per box or 50 tablets per bottle or 2-4 fluid oz. liquid. REASON: THERE IS VERY LIMITED SPACE IN OUR LOCKED MEDICINE CABINET.
  3. Prescription and Nonprescription Medications: A school medication form must be completed and signed by both the parent and physician for all medications.
  4. A parent is to deliver and/or pick up all medication. Medication should not be sent to school with a child riding a school bus. Medication will not be sent home with a student.
