Medications – Administering

No medication is to be transported to school or taken home from school by a child. A parent must bring it in and pick it up.

medication Medications given at school require permission forms and original containers. Please, pay special attention to age-appropriate medications. Adult medications cannot be given to children without a doctor’s order. It is also important to carefully check expiration dates on all medications. Each child must have his or her own medications and forms filled out. The medications are filed and locked up in the clinic.



*  For children with asthma: In addition to the medication used for nebulizer treatments, we recommend you provide an inhaler that will be kept in the clinic to be sent with your child on field trips.


Prescriptions are only good for the current school year.
No medication will be kept at school through the summer months. 
Any medication left will be discarded.
