    Students may need to take prescription medications while at school.

    In addition, many conditions can be treated at school with over-the-counter (OTC) medications.

    With proper provider prescription/physician orders, authorization, documentation and signatures, arrangements can be made to administer prescription and/or OTC medication to students.  This may prevent loss of time out of school.

    To have Prescription or OTC medication administered in school:

    • Complete the Medication Authorization Form.
    • Parent/guardian brings the Prescription/OTC medication to school clinic.
    • Clinic staff will process order and verify medication amount with parent.
    • Prescription medications must be properly labeled and correspond to the Medication Authorization Form.
    • OTC medications must be sealed and not expired.  
    • Parents must provide all medication, equipment, and supplies as needed at school.
    • Unused medications will be returned or destroyed per policy.

    Health Cards/Annual Student Medical/Health Information

    • The welfare of your child is our primary concern.  Completing an Annual Student Medical/Health Information Form/health card provides us with valuable information about your child's emergency contacts, physician/provider office, medical problems/conditions/medications. All parents/guardians must keep the information on their student’s Annual Student Medical/Health Information Form updated throughout the school year as needed.

    • Please ensure that emergency contact information is kept current and that the school is notified of any changes.  
    • This may also be done using FOCUS.
