Notice Regarding Medication Administration Including Tylenol Ibuprofen

 

A medication form must be completed prior to the administration of any medications.  No medications will be administered without a completed medication form on file with the school nurse.  When completing a medication form, only one medication can be included on each form.  Forms may be obtained from the school office or from the school district web site under the nurse heading.

 

Medication forms must include the following information:

1.                   Student name, birth date, grade, parent or guardian name, address and phone number.

2.                   Name of medication

3.                   Dosage of medication

4.                   When the medication is to be administered at school

5.                   Prescription medications require written and signed instructions from a physician.  Parent or guardian signature is also required.

6.                   Non prescription medications require the signature of parent or guardian only.  No physician signature required.

 

*All medications must be in the original labeled container.

 

*An inhaler is a prescription medication, thus requiring a medication form signed by both physician and parent.  The physician must give permission for the student to carry and self-administer the inhaler.

The Middle School and High School has a supply of ibuprofen and acetaminophen that may be administered to any student that has written permission from parent or guardian.  Parent or guardian permission over the phone will not be accepted.
