Whenever possible, medication should be administered at home. Parents have the option to personally administer medication to their child at any time during the school day. If a student needs medication during the school day or on an “as needed” basis without a parent present, please read the following information.
Medications - Prescription and Over-the-Counter require
an Authorization for Medication Administration (form H-26, see link below or
pick up from the office) to be
completed and signed by a California licensed physician and a parent.
Examples of over-the-counter medications are
Tylenol, Benadryl, Visine Eye Drops, etc. For prescription
medicines, bring the completed form and medication to the office. Medication
must be in the original pharmacy-labeled container stating the student’s
full name, medication name, proper dosage, and time to be given. For
over-the-counter medications, bring the completed form and medicine to the office in
the original container clearly labeled with the student’s name.
EpiPens and Epinephrine auto-injectors require a Life Threatening Allergy Plan (form H-58, see link below or pick up from the office) to be completed and signed by a California licensed physician and a parent. Bring the completed form, auto-injector and Benadryl, if prescribed, to the office in the original container clearly labeled with the student's name. Please check the expiration date on the medication you provide to the school office and update this medication as needed.
Sunscreen, lip balm, throat lozenges/cough drops and contact lens solution require only a parent's authorization by completing and signing the Authorization for Medication Administration (form H-26, see link below). A doctor's signature is not required. These items must be in original packaging and labeled with the student’s name.
Written information that must be provided is as follows:
· Student’s name.
· The name of the medication.
· Physician’s instructions detailing the date(s), method, amount and time medication is to be given.
· Parent/guardian and a California licensed physician signature.
