    Parents may request that the school district administer medication to their children when it is necessary for the medication to be administered throughout the school day. For medication administration parents must provide:

    1. A written physician's order listing medical diagnosis and specific instructions for administration (including name of medication, dose, times for administration and route of administration). An order is needed for prescribed as well as any over-the-counter medicines.

    2. Parent/guardian must sign a Parental Authorization form requesting the administration of medication.

    3. Medications must be delivered in pharmacy containers clearly labeled with the student's name, name of physician, date of prescription, name and telephone number of the pharmacy, name of medication, dosage, and frequency of administration.
