Medication at School
We recognized that some children need to take medication at school. The following precautions must be observed for the safety of your child and others:
- A Physician’s Authorization form (located on the district and school websites) must be completed and signed by you and your child’s doctor (licensed in California). It must state the name of the medication, dosage, and time to be given. ALL medication including over the counter must have a Physician’s Authorization form.
- Medication must be brought to the health office by an adult in the original prescription bottle and label or over the counter packaging.Students are not permitted to carry ANY medicine or keep medicine in their backpacks while at school unless indicated by a physician (this includes cough drops).
- We understand sometime medication needs to be transported between households. Please bring the medication to the health office at the beginning of the day and an adult can pick it up at the end of the day.
- If your child requires medication at school and the proper paperwork is not completed, a parent or an adult designated by the parent may administer the medication in the Health office.
Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us keep your children healthy!
