The policy of the Board of
Education discourages the administration of medication while at school
unless it is necessary and only under the following conditions:
- A letter of authorization must be submitted by the parent/guardian
and physician to be filed in the nurse's office. If it is necessary for
a student to take medication on a regular basis (i.e., to treat allergies,
menstrual cramps, headaches, or coughing), permission must be on file
from a physician and a parent/guardian for the student to come to the
nurse's office and take medication when required.
- Medicine, clearly identified, must be given to the school nurse to
ensure proper use. Students may not carry medication at school unless
authorized by the physician and parent/guardian and approved by school
officials. Students who have unauthorized medication in their possession
will be disciplined.
