Medications at School
All prescription medications must be in the original pharmacy labeled container with the student’s name, medication name, route of delivery, dosage, time interval of use, expiration date and the current date. Prescriptions must include the name of the prescribing licensed California healthcare provider. If necessary, request a duplicate bottle from the pharmacist for the school. If any medication is not in the original container, it CANNOT accepted or administered. Non-prescription over the counter medications must also be in the container with the manufacturer’s original label and expiration date.
In order for a student to self-carry and self-administer medication, additional medication must also be kept in the Health Office. This policy is to ensure the safety of our students in the event of an emergency. An Authorization for Medication form and a Self Administration form must be completed for a student to self-carry.
MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION FORMS:
A written physician’s order and parent/guardian authorization form must be completed for each medication for every school year. In addition to the Authorization for Medication form, if the student will be self-carrying medication, a Self Administration form must be completed. An Allergy and Anaphylaxis Emergency Care form must also be completed if the medication to be administered is an EpiPen. These forms are available in the school Health Office and as links on this page below.
MEDICATION DELIVERY TO HEALTH OFFICE:
Medications must be brought to school by the parent/guardian. Under no circumstances will the school administer medications brought to school by a student. Medication may not be carried in a student’s backpack unless they have an Authorization for Medication and Self Administration forms on file in the Health Office.
