    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 to occur during the school day, parents must provide:

     

     

    1. A written physician's order listing medical diagnosis and specific instructions for administration (including type of medication, dose, times for administration and route of administration). An order is needed for prescribed as well as any over-the-counter medicines. This must be updated for each school year. Last school year's orders cannot be utilized.

     

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

     

    3. Medications must be delivered in pharmacy containers by a parent/guardian and be 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. An updated order must be provided for any changes to a student's prescription. 

     

     

    **Medications must be picked up by parent/guardian at the end of the school year. If student is to take same medication next school year, a new order must be obtained by parent/guardian and provided to school. Failure to do so will prohibit the administration of medication to your student during the school day.**
