Medications  
The district prohibits students from possessing or self-administering medications while on district grounds, on district transportation or during district activities unless explicitly authorized in accordance with this policy.  Medications will only be administered at school when it is not possible or effective for the student to receive the medication at home.

The administration of medications is a nursing activity that must be performed by or under the supervision of a registered professional nurse. A registered professional nurse may delegate the administration of medication to a licensed practical nurse or unlicensed personnel who are trained by the nurse to administer medications. 

The nurse or designee must maintain thorough documentation of all medications administered to students.  Prescription medicine must brought in an appropriately labeled prescription container.  The Policy for Dispensing Medication Form is provided below to submit with prescription medicine for student.
