Medication at School
Medication at School- over the counter and prescription
School board policy prohibits students from carrying any medication including over the counter medications ( Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc) at school. The only exception to this with the proper physician forms are epi-pens, asthma inhalers, and diabetic supplies.
If you believe your child will require medication at school, prescription or over-the-counter, during the school year, please download the Medication Permission form. Ask your child's doctor to complete this form and bring the signed form with the prescribed medication on the first day of school. Check the expiration dates on all Inhalers, Epi-pens, and diabetic supplies to ensure they will last through the end of the school year.
Attention High & Middle School Families: If your student will be carrying his/her epi-pen or inhaler, in addition to the about medication permission form please complete the Permission to Carry Epi-Pens/Inhalers/Diabetic Supplies Form and return to your building's school nurse. This is in addition to the school district's medication form.
Food Allergies: If your child has a life-threatening food allergy and requires an epi-pen at school, please have your doctor complete this Food Allergy Action Plan and bring this completed plan with the medication on the first day of school. For grades K-6, we are asking that parents complete a Self-Management Allergy Checklist to be submitted at the beginning of next school
