DISPENSING MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL



IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT PARENTS GIVE ALL DOSES OF MEDICATION AT HOME.  

DISTRICT STAFF MAY ADMINISTER ONLY THOSE DOSES THAT MUST BE GIVEN DURING THE SCHOOL DAY.  MEDICATIONS PRESCRIBED TO BE GIVEN TWICE OR THREE TIMES A DAY WILL NOT BE ADMINISTERED AT SCHOOL, SINCE THESE DOSES MAY BE GIVEN AT HOME.

PRESCRIPTION AND NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE MUST BE PRESENTED IN ITS ORIGINAL CONTAINER WITH THE STUDENT'S FULL NAME AFFIXED TO THE CONTAINER.  SCHOOL PERSONNEL AUTHORIZED BY THE PRINCIPAL WILL ADMINISTER THE MEDICINE AS DIRECTED.
