The parent must also sign indicating they will accept all responsibility if their child or any other student becomes ill because of misuse of the medication. All other policies concerning possession of a controlled substance apply.

    • All prescription medications and over-the-counter medications (including cough drops) that have an excessive dosage warning should be sent to the clinic with a completed medication form including the physician’s’ signature. No medication will be dispensed from the clinic unless a completed form is on file.
    • Medication must be in its original container, properly labeled with the name of the drug, student’s name, and dosage, time of administering, physician, and the current date.
    • Medication may be given legally only by school personnel who have been trained by a registered nurse.
