    Student Medications

    When it is necessary for a student to take medication at school (including but not limited to pharmaceuticals, asthma inhalers, epinephrine auto-injectors, etc.), families must complete and return a Medication Request Form (English/Spanish). School personnel can administer medication only when ordered by a physician. Medication ordered by a physician and labeled by a pharmacist also requires authorization from the parent/guardian to administer at school. Parent/guardian instructions must match information on the pharmacy label. Requests to administer over-the-counter medications must be accompanied by a request signed by the parent/guardian and physician. All medication must be in the original container with the original label. All schools have the ability to store medications that require refrigeration.
