A child may be given medication while in school, however, certain protocol must be followed.
- An authorization to administer prescription and/or over the counter medication must be completed and signed by a licensed prescriber and a parent or guardian. The form can be found on the district's health and wellness website. Parents may also request a form from the school nurse, Penny Williams.
- The medication must be delivered to the school by the parent or guardian. It is not acceptable for the child to deliver the medication.
I am here to meet your child's health care needs and happy to do so, however, I must follow policy and procedure.
Penny Williams, RN,MS
