Taking Medications at School

The health and safety of our students is our top priority. If your child will require medication during the school day, please follow the guidelines below. Parents/guardians should make every effort to avoid the necessity of administering medications during the school day or during school-supervised extracurricular activities through arranging dose times around school hours or other methods discussed between the parent, licensed prescriber and Registered Nurse.

The District and its employees assume no responsibility regarding any abuse or misuse of medication carried by a student.

When the administration of medication is necessary during school hours, the following rules and procedures shall apply regarding the administration of prescription or over-the-counter medications to students. Please review Board Policy po5330 Use of Medications for more details.
