The school nurse's office is not a primary care facility. The nurse, by law, is not allowed to make a diagnosis, prescribe treatment, or administer medication without a Doctor's order. First aid and medical care provided by the school nurse are primarily for illnesses or injuries that occur during the school day. Notify your school nurse immediately if your child has a special health concern.
- Parents are encouraged to schedule medications and/or medical treatments during non-school hours.
- All medication must be brought into school by a parent or legal guardian.
- All medication (prescription and non prescription) requires a completed Medication Permission Form.
- Medication must be in a bottle properly labeled by a pharmacist or for over the counter medication in an unopened sealed bottle with your child's name clearly written on the container.
