Medications in School

Please refer to our Parent Student Handbook for our Medication Policies. 

A Medication Authorization Form is required for the administration of any medication, prescription or over the counter, in school. The form must be completed by a health care provider (MD, APN, PA) and signed by the parent.

The use of inhalers for asthma do not require a physician's order but do require the prescription label and written parent permission on the back of the medication authorization form. 

Food Allergies

Children with food allergies are required to have a Food Allergy Action Plan in school.
