Under normal circumstances prescribed oral medication and oral over the counter medication should be dispensed before and/or after school hours under supervision of the parent or guardian. If it is essential for a child to take oral medication during school hours and the parent cannot be at school to administer the medication, the parent must submit a written authorization accompanied by written instructions from a licensed health professional.

Self-Administration of Asthma and Anaphylaxis Medications
Students with asthma or anaphylaxis are afforded the opportunity to self-administer prescribed medications. The student’s parent or guardian will submit a written request and other documentation required by the school. The student’s prescribing health care provider must provide a written treatment plan.

Protocols for medication at school are posted on the District website.
