When administering prescription medicines, the school district would prefer to have a written statement from a physician or dentist licensed to practice in the United States. Information, however, placed on a prescription label, if it is precise and clear to the school nurse, may be substituted for the above-noted statement. The nurse may request a doctor's statement for certain prescription medications. The prescription must be filled by a pharmacist licensed to practice in the United States. The prescription medicine must be in its original container properly labeled with child’s name, name of the medicine and directions for time and dosage. Prescription medicine are kept in locked storage in the office of the school nurse, or principal's designee, and administered by the school nurse or a school employee.

All medication must be brought to the clinic by a parent, guardian or other responsible adult and shall be secured there at all times. For the safety and protection of all students, medication will not be sent home with students. When the period for administering the medication expires, the medication must be picked up by the parent, legal guardian, or other responsible adult. A doctor’s note is required to be on file in the school clinic for any emergency medication a student may need to carry such as insulin, inhalers or epi-pens.
