Complete the medication permit when you need to send your child's medication to school.
School is an institution just like a hospital. The school requires a doctor's order for all prescription medications, including some over-the-counter medications which need to be administered during the school year. If it is necessary for your child to receive medication at school, please note these key points. We will be glad to work with you and your child to make certain the medication is given in a safe manner.
Please ask the pharmacist to prepare an extra prescription container for school use. If the medication is sent to school in other types of containers, the health office staff are not allowed to administer the medication and the parent will be called.
School and State Medical Policy advise against sending medications with children to avoid accidental breaking of bottles or other children taking the medication. Medication must be transported to and from school by the parent or guardian or adult designated by the parent or guardian (i.e., bus driver).
