Administering Medication:

In compliance with the State Education Department and the Nurse Practice Act, we do not administer medication (prescription or over the counter medications) and/or medical treatment without an order from a physician, nurse practitioner or other licensed prescribers. In order to legally comply with school regulations, we need a parent/guardian signature for medication/treatment administration. A new medication form must be completed and on file at the school for each school year prior to the administration of any medication/treatment. Parents must transport medication to and from school. All medications must be presented in their original, labeled container with the student's name, name of medication, name of prescribing physician, and dosage with beginning and ending date. This medication must be accompanied by physician's medication order and parental permission for administration.
