Instructions for Student Medication in School

  • If your child needs medication in school, please complete the following steps.  Please note: Schools do not provide any medication to students, including over the counter (OTC) medications such as Benadryl, Tylenol, etc.

    1. Each prescription medication should have a pharmacy label and all medications should be in the original box/container. The label should match the doctor’s order.
    2. The Student Medication Authorization Form (see the list on the right) must be completed, front and back, and signed by both the parent and physician.  A separate form must be completed for EACH prescribed and/or OTC medication.  
    3. For EpiPens, the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Action Plan protocol (see the list on the left) must be completed.
    4. All forms and medication need to be placed in a gallon-size ziplock bag and labeled with the student's name and grade on the outside.
    5. Please remember to check the medication periodically to make sure that it does not expire during the school year.
