Guidelines for Medication at School
If you would like your child to receive any medication (even over-the-counter medication) at school, you will need to provide the school nurse with the following items:
- A parent/guardian consent form. This is your permission for school staff to administer medication to your child.
- A written medical order from your child’s Health Care Provider.
- Prescription medication must come packaged with the prescription label that contains the child's name, name of the medication and dosage, time to be given and practitioner's name.
- Over-the-counter medication must come to school in the original manufacturer packaging.
