If your child requires medication at school:
You must complete the Medication Dispersion Form (MIS 5183), bring the medicine to the clinic, and sign it in each time a refill is required.
Your child can not bring his or her meds to the clinic and they can not keep them in their book bags.
Your child will receive his or her medication at the ordered time from the doctor.
If you want to give it at another time, then we will need a new doctor's order for school.
Cough drops may be given to the teacher to hold in her desk for the child.
Any lotions, creams, sprays, or anything else that is medicated must be signed into the clinic.
If your child is caught with these items in their backpacks, they will be removed and only you can come to get them.
The label on the bottle for prescription medications must be updated and for school times only.
If the bottle says 1x daily it is a give at home
If the bottle says 2x daily and not a time specified for school hours then it is an at-home medicine
For any PRN medications, the medication must be age appropriate and not expired.
If the doctor wants the child to take adult pain relievers , the doctor's note must specify that.
If a child is asking for pain relievers more than 5 times, the doctor should see the child to address the problem.
After 5 times we would then need a doctor's note for the child to continue.
