Prescribed medications which are necessary for the health of a child may be administered during the school day. It is recommended that whenever possible, all medications be administered at home by the parent or guardian. The first dose of any new medication should always be administered at home to ensure close observation of any adverse reaction. If your physician decides it is necessary for your child to receive a medication during school hours, the parent or guardian may request that the school nurse administer the physician prescribed medication at scheduled times. This applies to all prescription and over- the -counter medications.
