Students needing to receive any medication (prescription or non-prescription) during school hours must have written prescription from your Health Care Provider and written permission from a parent or guardian in order for the nurse to administer the medication. The medication must be in the original container and must be delivered to the Health Office by a parent or guardian. STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE MEDICATION ON THEIR PERSON AT SCHOOL. The only exception is a rescue inhaler for an asthmatic student who has written permission from their Health Care Provider and has been deemed self-directed by the School Nurse.
