Elementary School Families: If your child needs medication at school and will be attending in-person learning, you will need to schedule an appointment with your school nurse to drop off your child’s medication. When dropping off your child’s medication, 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)
You must wear a mask to enter the school. At the entry door, you will have your temperature taken and must answer screening questions before meeting with the nurse. Please reschedule your drop-off if you have any signs of illness, and 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)
