If your child requires medication at school, a parent or guardian has to bring that medication to the school nurse.
The following items are required:
- Medication in the original container
- A doctor’s order with instructions for giving the medication
- Parent signature on the Medication Form (below)
- If indicated: Attestation form (below) for self-carry (e.g. for inhaler)
Please contact the school nurse with any questions.
This form is to be completed by your child's health care provider for any medication (both precription and over-the -counter) that is necessary for your child to take at school. Please note that many healthcare providers utilize an Electronic Health Record that already has a "medication order for school administration" section; those forms are also accepted as a medication order, but must also be signed by parent to allow the school nurse to administer the medication. ALL MEDICATIONS MUST BE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN IN THE ORIGINAL CONTAINER.
If a student must self-carry a medication at school (albuterol, epipen), the healthcare provider must sign an attestation form stating that the child is independent and able to carry the medication at school. ( see Attestation/Independent Medication Carry Form)
