The clinic has the following over the counter medications available to students with the parent’s written consent: acetaminophen, ibuprofen, tums, oral and topical benadryl, hydrocortisone cream, clear eye drops and cough drops.
Other medications may be administered at school by the nurse with a written order from a licensed health care provider, with parent written permission. All medications must be in their original prescribed labeled containers. An administration of medication form must be filled out by the parent EVERY school year. Students are allowed to self-carry medications (inhaler, epinephrine auto-injector, pancreatic enzymes) providing that a self-carry administration form is completed and signed by both parent and student, with the approval of the school nurse.
Life threatening allergies:
A severe allergy health history form must be completed and signed by the parent every year. Parents are expected to provide their child’s epinephrine auto-injector (with its original prescription label) to the nurse by the first day of school.
