Many students have chronic or acute health concerns that require medications to be administered during the school day. We have different requirements for student medications based on elementary and middle / high school level
Elementary School Students
All medications for elementary students will be stored in the school Health Office and administered by school staff. Parents must complete a Medication Administration Form. This form requires physician and parent completion each school year.
If your student has asthma, diabetes, allergies, or a seizure disorder, please refer to those tabs on this page for the appropriate forms and information on self-carry requirements
Middle and High School Students
Middle and high school students may possess and self administer most prescription medications and all over-the-counter medications prescribed to them by a physician. Students may only possess a sufficient dosage of a medication to treat their medical condition for a single day.
Prescription medications for ADHD / ADD, controlled substances, or other medications with a "street value" cannot be self administered. These types of medications must be safely stored in the health office and administered by school staff.
Permission to possess and self administer medications may be restricted by school administration if it is determined there is a risk of harm to students. Parents must notify the health office of any / all medications their student will have at school. If your middle or high school student's medication will need to be administered by school staff, you will need to complete a Medication Administration Form. This form requires physician and parent completion each school year.
If your student has asthma, diabetes, allergies, or a seizure disorder, please refer to those tabs on this page for the appropriate forms.
