Medication Policy

Dispensing medication is not the responsibility of the school. However, the school district recognizes that some students may require prescribed medication during the school day. In most cases, medication prescribed for three times a day does not need to be administered during school hours. It is most effective if administered every eight hours.

If it is essential a student take medication during the school day, the following protocol will be followed:

We care about your child's safety: Narcotic pain mediations will not be given at school, ie. Vicodin, Tylenol w/Codine, Percocet, Oxycodone, etc. If your child needs narcotic pain medication at school, he/she is not ready to return to school.

NOTE: You are in violation of state law if a student takes medication outside of the School Health Services office that has not been processed through that office and if required documentation/consent is not in place. This includes all nonprescription medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Authorization forms to give medication in school are available in each school's Health Services office, or the following form can be downloaded, completed and brought to the appropriate school office:
