Back to School: Medication policy

School employees may administer medication prescribed by a doctor to students with a written request from the parents or guardians. All personnel who administer medication must receive appropriate training.

Students may not possess, use or transmit any drugs prohibited by the school system. All medication kept by the school must be kept in a locked and secure place.

While efforts not to disrupt instructional time must be made, parents and guardians have the right to administer medicine to their child while on school property.

For students to carry and use over-the-counter medication, the drug must be in its original container with written authorization signed by the parent, including the date and time to administer and amount of the medication to be self-administered by the student.

Students who require emergency medication for conditions such as asthma and severe allergies must have an emergency health-care plan developed for them to address emergency administration of medicine.
