Medications at School
If a student should need medication while at school that can not be given at home, a medication authorization form will need to be filled out by you and your doctor then returned to the school nurse with the medication. A student may carry and take medication that is not a controlled substance while at school if the additional authorization to self-medicate is completed. All medication forms can be found under the forms tab, please note there are disease specific,as well as, general forms. Contact the school nurse if you need assistance with choosing the correct form. A new form is required for each school year.
