Medication

Any student may carry and self-administer asthma/anaphylaxis rescue medication at school when authorized by his or her parent/guardian and healthcare provider and approved by the school nurse.

Students in grades 7-12 may carry and self-administer his/her own prescription medication (excluding controlled substances) when authorized by the parent/guardian, the healthcare provider, and the school nurse. In addition, students may carry a reasonable amount of over-the-counter medication for their own use with appropriate authorization from the parent/guardian and approved by the school nurse.

No student may give, dispense, or administer any mediation or remedy to another student. Any violation of the conditions for permission to carry and/or self-administer medication may result in termination of that permission as well as discipline.
