    Q. What if my student needs to take medicine during the school day?


    Parent/Guardian must bring the medication to the school office and complete the medication administration form. Students may not transport medications to and from school.  Please follow the link: MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION AUTHORIZATION
    Asthma rescue inhalers may be an exception in some cases, talk to your school nurse. The purpose of having medication at school is to keep a student in school. This applies to all prescription and over the counter medications like ibuprofen & Tylenol. All medications must be in the original container with a label from the pharmacy detailing the exact dosage and it must have the student's name on it. The medication must not be expired.

    Q. What if I want my student to carry their own medicine during the school day?

    Students from grade 5 to grade 12 may be permitted to carry his/her own temporary prescription and nonprescription medication to school in instances where the student’s maturity level is such that he/she could reasonably be expected to appropriately administer the medication on his/her own. In such instances, the student may carry one day’s dosage of prescription or nonprescription medication, excluding narcotic pain medication, on their person.

    Students in preschool through grade 4 will not self-administer prescription and/or nonprescription medications except for asthma inhalers, insulin, or epinephrine auto-injectors.

    Any misuse of such medication by the student may be subject to disciplinary action under the District’s Safe Schools Policy.
