Medication Permission Form
In accordance with the policy on the administration of prescription and non-prescription drugs, herbs, supplements, and any medication to a student by school personnel, we require that such students should be required to complete this form in order to establish parental authorization and consent. There should be a new, separate form for each medication. Moreover, a written statement from the doctor/dentist accompanied by written permission from a parent before medication can be given to a student by school personnel. This includes over-the-counter medication.
Finally, the medication must be in its original container with the affixed label from the pharmacist. With regard to prescription medication, one must show the date, student’s name, name of the medication, dosage directions, licensed prescriber’s name, and Rx number (if there is one). A written order from the physician is required for a student to carry an inhaler or Epi-Pen. The following information is necessary to comply with this policy.
