District Health Medication At School
Will your child need medication during the school day?
Each Medication is required to have:
- Parental Authorization of Medical Administration Form (PDF) completed by the parent/legal guardian and turned in to the School Nurse at your child’s building.
- The medication must be in the original labeled container as dispensed or the manufacturer’s labeled container.
- The medication label contains the student name, name of the medication, and directions for use, and date.
- Annual renewal and immediate notification of changes are to be in writing by the parent/legal guardian
All medications must be brought in by the parent or legal guardian. The only medications that are allowed in a child’s backpack are those students with asthma or other airway constricting diseases, (i.e., inhalers, epipens, diastat). But even in these cases, a Parent Authorization of Medication Administration Form needs to be on file and the School Nurse needs to be notified that the child is carrying this medication.
