The Authorization for Medication form must be completed and signed by a licensed health professional and parent. A new Authorization for Medication form is required each school year. Oral medication, topical medication, eye drops or ear drops and life-saving medications can be administered. Forms are available at the school office or from the student’s doctor’s office. Medicine must be in its original container, labeled with student’s name and not expired. Prescription medications must have the students’ prescription label attached. Students are not allowed to carry medication of any kind without preauthorization from office and administration.  If your child has a life-threatening allergy or other serious condition, please let the office know as there may be additional emergency forms needed.
