Medication & Restriction of Activities
If it becomes necessary for a student to take medication, whether prescription or prescribed over-the counter medication, the parent must furnish the public health nurse with the medication, in a prescription bottle or original container if it is a prescribed over-the-counter medication, labeled with the child’s name, medication name, dose and time of administration.
The “Authorization For Medication Release and Indemnification Agreement” which has been signed by both the parent/guardian and physician must accompany the medication. A fax copy from the physician will be accepted.
In addition, the staff will apply sunscreen and/or insect repellant to a child if:
· The parent provides written authorization, noting any known adverse reactions;
· The parent provides an original container of the substance that is labeled with their child’s name.
