• MEDICATION POLICY
       
      It is best if medication can be given at home, either before or after school.  However, the administration of a prescribed medication or self administered medication, and other medications, to a student during school hours in accordance with the direction of a parent/guardian and or family physician will be allowed when: 
      • Failure to take such medicine would jeopardize the health of the student or,
      • The student would not be able to attend school if the medicine were not made available during school hours.
      If it is necessary to take medication at school, it will be stored in the nurses office in the original labeled container, with the proper pharmaceutical label and with a valid expiration date; along with the administration time designated by the physician. Medication forms are available here or at school. Parents should bring the clearly labeled medication and completed medication form directly to the nurse's office.

      Students are not allowed to carry medication in backpacks, lunch boxes or keep in desks. The exceptions are inhalers, insulin, epi-pens, and some eyedrops, in which responsible students are permitted to carry, after turning the self-administration medication form into the nurse. 

      A new medication form, completed by parent and healthcare provider, is needed for every school year.  

      Please feel free to contact your school nurse, Mary Wagoner, with any medication questions or concerns.
