The only medication that cannot be given outside of the school day will be administered at school (i.e. mealtimes, physician designated
time, four times a day or greater.) All medication taken at school must be prescribed by a doctor or dentist licensed to
practice in the State of Texas. School nurses must also have a signed parent request.
All medication must be in the original container and properly labeled with:
- student’s name
- name of the medication
- dosage and times to be taken
Giving medication to school/nurse
All medications must be deposited with the school office along with a signed Medication form. It is recommended that only a 30-day supply be brought to school. A parent or guardian must deliver the medication to the school. A request may be made by school staff to count the medication amount with the adult delivering the medication if deemed necessary.
May be returned home with a student with written parent permission.
Over-the-counter medications like Advil and cough drops will not be administered at school unless there is:
1. A signed doctor’s order giving specific instructions for medication administration
2. A signed parent request
Students carrying their own medicine
Students may carry and self-administer emergency rescue medication while at school or school functions with permission from parents, physician, and school nurse.
