Permission for Administration by a School Nurse or Registered Nurse
Permission for the administration of medication in school or at school-related events will be given only when it is necessary for the health and safety of the student. Parent requests for the administration of medication in school must be made in writing and signed by the Parent and student’s Physician.
The parent must submit a certified statement written and signed by the student's physician. The statement must include:
The student's name, the name of the medication, the timing and dosage of medication,
The purpose of its administration to the student for whom the medication is intended,
any side effects of the medication and the time when the medication will be discontinued;
Custodianship of Medication
All medications must be delivered to the School Nurse by the Parent.
All medications must be in the original container, with the prescription information affixed.
The School Nurse shall be custodian of students' medication, which will be properly secured.
Any unused medication must be picked up by the student's parent.
After reasonable efforts to have the parent retrieve the medication have failed, any unused medication that remains in the school at the end of the school year or two school weeks after the student stops taking the medication, whichever first occurs, must be destroyed or discarded by the School Nurse, in accordance with proper medical controls.
