Medication at School

Preferably, all medication should be dispensed before and or after school hours under supervision of a parent or guardian.

By State Law, and for safety reasons, medication can be given at school only with specific written directions from a doctor and with a signed request from you, as the parent or guardian. No medication should be sent to school without these written directions. This includes over the counter medicines such as aspirin, cold and allergy medications, asthma inhalers, etc.

If your physician judges that it is absolutely necessary to have your child receive medication at school and he/she requires help from the staff, the permit form is available from the school office. You will want to take one of these forms with you to the doctor’s office.


If students are to self-administer their own medication, please send only a daily dose in a labeled container. A written note must also be sent giving your child permission to take the medication on his own.
