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.
