  • The student is responsible for reporting to the nurse clinic on time for medication administration.  
  • Students are not permitted to carry any medication to, from, or during school (unless approved by physician for emergency medication).  The parent/guardian is advised to deliver medication directly to the Nurse. School personnel are not responsible for medication prior to delivery to them.
  • All medication must be delivered in the original container properly labeled with directions for administration. The student’s name must be clearly visible on the container/packaging. 
  • It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure a continuous supply of medication for the student.
  • The medication will be administered in accordance with the licensed prescriber’s instructions.  STUDENTS MAY NOT CARRY OR ADMINISTER THEIR OWN MEDICATION WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTION: As allowed by State and Federal law, a physician may order that a student carry certain self-administered medications that may prevent a situation of potential risk to the life or long term disability.
  1. The District and its employees assume no responsibility regarding any abuse or misuse of medication carried by a student.
  2. Back of doses of any medication self-carried by a student (epinephrine, rescue inhaler), should be provided by the parent to be kept in the clinic.
