Medication Policy and Forms >

According to our medication policy, students who need medication administered during school hours must first complete a medication consent form from both the physician and the parent.  Parental permission for school personnel to supervise the consumption of medicines is also mandatory. Authorization forms must be on file for each medication your student needs. Enclosed are samples of the forms:

  1. Medical Provider Authorization Form – used for prescription medications.
  2. Parent/ Guardian Medication Authorization Form – used for all medication.
  3. Asthma Inhaler Administration Authorization Form – used for inhalers.
