District policy prohibits schools from giving prescription medication to students except by written permission by the doctor who prescribed it. This permission form can be obtained from the office. The medication must be in its original container with the pharmaceutical label and the student’s name, drug, dosage, and time to be given. Students are not allowed to keep prescription or non-prescription medicine in their possession. All medicines are to be kept in the main office. The only exception is inhalers for students with asthma as long as the front office is given a parent or physician note. Any over-the-counter medication (in original container) will require written parent/guardian permission indicating the name of the medication and correct dosage, prior to being administered by school personnel. This medication is kept in the office.
