Administering Medication to Students
Students should not take any medication during school hours or during school activities unless their licensed health care provider and parent/guardian believe it is necessary. Any medications dispensed during school hours or school activities must adhere to the District's policy and procedures on dispensing medication.. A "School Medication Authorization Form" must be completed and and signed by both the parent/guardian AND the child's licensed health care provider. NO student shall possess or consume any prescription or over the counter medication on school grounds other than what is stated in the School District 105 policy and procedures. Medication at school needs to be brought in by a parent/guardian and be in an unopened sealed container. If the medication is a prescription it needs to be in the original container. A student may carry with them an epinephrine auto injector or inhaler for immediate use at the student's discretion with health care provider and parent written permission.
