Medications At School
Parents, if your child needs medication administered at school for any reason, and you, as a parent, are not able to administer that medication at school, a doctor must sign an “Authorization to Administer Medication During School Hours” form. Office personnel or your teacher cannot administer any form of medication (including Over the Counter) without this form.
