Medications

All medications dispensed at the school must be taken to the office. Students requiring the regular use of puffers due to asthma need to notify the school. Puffers need to be stored in a central location agreed upon with school personnel. The parent is required to complete an authorization form as well as provide a physician authorization form. Information on this form must indicate clearly the name of the student, name of the medication, time to be administered and prescribing doctor. If there is any change in the medication, the form must be revised and initialled by the doctor. Forms are available in the office. These forms must be updated each year.
