Medication in School

If your child needs to take MEDICATION during the school day:

1. Themedication must be in the original pharmacy container.  The pharmacist can divide a prescription into home and school bottles if you request it. Over the counter medication must be in the original bottle.

2. Sign the parent permission statement on the Medication Procedure Form.   

3.  Have the student's doctor sign the physician's order section of the Medication Procedure Form or write a physician's order for the medication. Medication orders must include:

                  Name of student

                  Name of medication                                      

                  Dose of medication to be given                    

                  Time(s) medication is to be given                 

                  Side effects

 Don'tworry;doctors are used to providing an order for school!  The doctor may also fax a medication order to the school.

4. Shaler Area School Board Policy prohibits students from carrying medication in school with the exception of medications needed for potentially life-threatening conditions (inhalers, epi-pens, insulin).
