All medication must be in a container with a pharmacy label noting the name of the student, medication name, dosage, and clear directions for administration. 3. All medication must be provided in the correct dosage prescribed by the physician. Any alteration to the medication pill required to provide correct dosage should be completed by the pharmacy/guardian prior to bringing the prescription bottle to the school. 4. No medication that is to be given three (3) times a day or less will be administered at school unless a physician's statement specifically directs the medication to be given at a certain time. 5. In order to ensure medication efficacy and student safety, no scheduled medication will be administered at school within one (1) hour of the arrival bell or within 1 hour of the dismissal bell. 6. School personnel are not trained to determine when non-scheduled medications are needed, as this is a form of prescribing. However, there are times when PRN (as needed) medication may be required. A physician statement must be provided giving specific instructions regarding how much, when, and how often the medication is to be given. 7. The Medication Consent Form must be signed by the parent/guardian for any medication to be given to a student at school. Handwritten notes are not acceptable. 8.

A locked and limited access area for storage of medications will be provided. 14. Parents/guardians shall be responsible for transporting medication to and from school for students in grades K-12. It is recommended that parents/guardians bring a month supply to school and note when more medicine is needed to prevent missed doses due to depleted supply. The quantity of medication will be counted and recorded when medication is brought to the school. If you have any questions, please email the school nurse at the address listed below.
