The action plan must also be signed by a parent or guardian. Please have all forms completed and submitted at the start of the school year so that we can provide the best care possible to your student.

    Medications


    The following over-the-counter medications/treatments may be administered by health room staff with a completed and signed over-the-counter medication form:

    • Bacitracin antibiotic ointment

    • Calamine

    • Hydrocortisone Cream 1%

    • Metholyptus cough drops

    • Aloe Vera lotion

    The form also allows for you to confirm that your student can apply their own non-aerosol topical sunscreen, as needed.

     

    If your student is prescribed medication that must be administered at any time at school (daily or as needed), the health room must have a signed order from a medical provider (DO, MD, CRNP, PA-C) on file. You must also supply the health room with the medication (we are not able to stock medications in the health room). Please review the SCASD medication policy here.
