NO child is to take or carry PRESCRIPTION OR OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS to school. If a child, by order of a physician must receive medications in school, state law requires both parent and physician signature prior to administrating medication. Therefore, a prescription label IS NOT acceptable in lieu of an MD’s order. A written order must be obtained.
Our Medication Authorization Form must be completed and signed by both physician and the parent. This form along with the prescribed medication in its original container must be brought to school by the parent/guardian.
