MEDICATION POLICY

If your child will require daily and/or emergency medications during the 2020-2021 school year, please have a district medication authorization form completed for EACH medication. Page one requires a physician to complete, page two is for parents to complete. This form applies to all prescription and over the counter medications.

For inhalers only: ONLY page 2 of the medication authorization needs to be completed by a parent or guardian. An asthma action plan should be completed by your child's physician. Below is a link to the recommended form but we will also accept a form that is preferred by your child’s medical provider.

Food allergies: Students with food allergies must have an Illinois Food Allergy Emergency Action Plan and Treatment Authorization Form on file with the school nurse. The form must be completed by a licensed health care provider and the parent/guardian. It is the parent/guardian responsibility to submit the form and the emergency medication to the school health office prior to the student attending school.
