Self-Administration of Medication
Students in grades 7-8 may be allowed to self-carry and self-administer Tylenol or ibuprofen, if a signed form to self-carry has been received by the health office, a signed student agreement has been reviewed with student and the building health care specialist and the medication is in its original container/packaging.
If a student abuses this privilege in any way, the school may revoke their ability to self-carry over-the-counter pain relievers.
Students of any age may self-carry an inhaler or EpiPen with appropriate completed forms.
Stock Medication in Health Offices
The health offices do not carry or administer stock medication, such as Tylenol, ibuprofen or Benadryl.
It is preferred that all medications are brought to school by a parent/guardian.
If a student brings medication to school, the student must go directly to the health office with the medication, upon arrival at school. The medication bottle must be in a sealed envelope with the student's name, the name of the medication and the number of pills/doses. Students are not allowed to carry medication throughout the building.
Medication will be sent home with the student on the last day of school, unless a parent/guardian has made alternative arrangements ahead of time with the building health care specialist.
