Medications must be delivered to the school in their prescribed containers by the parent or responsible adult. No more than a 45 day supply may be stored at the school. Forms are available in the school health office.
The only medications students may carry and self-administer in school are inhalers for asthma and/or EpiPens used for severe allergies. These medications also require a prescriber's written order and parent/guardian permission. The authorizations must be submitted to the school nurse.
