Medication

Overview
The administration of medication is regulated by CA Ed code and other state laws.  Students requiring medication during the day can be served with appropriate planning and documentation.  Written authorization for medication (either prescription or "over-the-counter" products) must be signed by the parent and by the physician (see form below). This authorization must be renewed annually and whenever there is a change to the prescription. Medication must be given to the school office in the original container and labeled with the student's name.

Students cannot carry medications at school or school-sponsored activities with the exception of: 1) inhalers for asthma treatment; 2) Epi-pens for allergic reaction and 3) insulin for the treatment of diabetes.

Only the school nurse or staff trained by the school nurse, who hold current CPR certification, can assist with administration of medication and maintain all necessary records.  Medication administration training must be reviewed annually.

 

Field Trips

Field trips are an extension of the classroom and all policies related to medication administration continue to apply.   Refer to the district field trip policy.
