If students must take prescription medication during the school day, written instructions and authorization must be provided by the student’s physician. We cannot give aspirin, Tylenol, medicated lip balm, or other over-the-counter medication, unless prescribed by a physician. Students may not carry medication, medicated lip balm, etc. All medications must be in the original container, properly labeled with the name of the pharmacy, patient’s name, doctor’s name, and dosage clearly marked. ALL MEDICATION MUST BE KEPT IN THE CLINIC.
Cough drops are no longer considered medication under this policy, and therefore, parent and physician authorization is not required for a student.
