MEDICINES

If a student is required to take medication during school hours and the parent cannot be at school to administer the medication, only the principal or his designee will administer the medication in compliance with the following guidelines:

The parent/legal guardian or emergency contact designee is requested to deliver to the school a completed district medication form and any medication except controlled substances and is required to deliver controlled substances. All medication must be in the original prescription container labeled with the following typed information:              

     a. student’s name                                                            f. directions for use
     b. name of medication                                                     g. approximate duration of use
               c. time(s) to be administered                                            h. physician’s name
               d. dosage                                                                        i. date
               e. strength                                                                       j. pharmacy name, address, phone number

If, under exceptional circumstances, the parent/legal guardian is unable to personally deliver the medication to the school, note indicating the number of units of medication must be sent with the student and must accompany the container and the
completed district medication form.
School personnel will do the following:
  • inform the principal or principal's designee of the medication
  • keep a record of the receipt and administration of medication on the district form
  • keep medication in a secure, locked container or cabinet
  • return unused medication to the parent/legal guardian or student at the principal's discretion unless                   instructed otherwise one week after termination of treatment or at the end of the school year
1. Refilled prescription drugs must be provided in a new container, appropriately labeled. Medication may not   
exceed a one month supply.    
  
2. Any changes in administration of current prescription medication must be accompanied by a district                    medication form and a new label indicating the changes.
 
3. A faxed or hard copy physician’s order to change the administration of a drug may also be accepted.                                                                           
                
4. Students may be given permission to carry and self- administer their medications due to life
threatening conditions. Permission will be granted only after a physician’s order is received.

5. The school district retains the discretion to reject any request for administration of medicine.

6. A copy of this regulation will be provided to parents upon their request for administration of medication in the schools.

7. School personnel and employees cannot be responsible for the adequacy of prescribed medications or medical treatments recommended by physicians or related medical professionals and/or supplied by pharmacist or other sources outside of the school district and, therefore, will assume no responsibility for the effects of such medications or treatments upon students.
