Medications can be administered at school when it is absolutely necessary and when proper prescriptive information and parental consent have been provided. Parents should administer medication at home if at all possible. Students are not permitted to self-medicate or carry medications with them while on school property with the exception of inhalers or emergency medications ordered and recommended by a physician’s order.
Medications must be in the original container from the pharmacy with the student’s name,
Medication given three (3) times a day (such as antibiotics) should be given at home. Parents should bring medication to the school office. (See James Rumsey Technical Institute Medication Policy—JGCD.)
