What's your medication policy?

  1. Certified staff members administer medications during the school day. A registered nurse oversees the staff members and monitors the student’s medication administration on a regular basis for therapeutic value and side effects. Arrangements will be made to transport necessary medication to school. Medications are kept in a locked cabinet at all times.
  2. Medications must be in the original pharmacy container and must be labeled with the medication name and prescribed dose to be administered. The label must be consistent with contents.
  3. A Medication Administration Form must be completed and signed prior to the dispensing of any medication. A physician form must also be completed.
  4. Any change in prescription or dosage should be reported immediately and a new permission form must be obtained. The parent/guardian provides medication.
