Medication Policies

  

· All medications, prescription or over the counter drugs MUST be brought into the school by a parent or guardian with our medication permission form filled out by the prescribing doctor and signed by the legal guardian.  Forms are available in the office.
 
· Students may NOT carry the medication into school by themselves.  It is much too risky. 
Students are targets for intimidation and sharing.  Besides, it’s the LAW!
 
· The state medication rules also apply for after school activities, sporting events, and field trips.  Please talk to the office personnel if your child needs ANY medication.
 
· Additionally, if your child takes medication daily, please talk to the office personnel about    “disaster preparedness”.  We encourage you to give us a “3-day supply” of your child’s medication in case your child is confined at school during a natural disaster.  Permission forms and procedures are available in the office. 
 
· Our school health room is staffed by Nurse Anita Madea and Medication Aide Janice Kilmer.  They can be reached at the school phone number
360-462-6671 if you have any questions.

 

Remember:  Never send medication to school with your student!
