Medication

School personnel may not administer any medication, including aspirin, without a signed authorization form. Students who need to take any medicine must present a statement of permission, signed by the doctor and parent or guardian, before bringing the medication to school. The medication and form must be left in the office. The school nurse or principal’s designee will administer the medication to the child at the required time.

In an effort to best serve your child, it is important that the teacher and principal know about critical medical conditions. If your child is allergic to bee stings, has a chronic condition (asthma, diabetes, etc.), or other physical ailments that the school should be made aware of, please inform the school. Most of the common medical authorization forms can be found in the Files.
