If possible, all medications should be given by the parent at home. If this is not possible, it will be done in accordance to the following:
1. “Medications” shall include all medications: those prescribed by a physician and any non-prescribed (over the counter) drugs, preparations and/or remedies.
2. A medication form that has been completed by both physician and parent/guardian must be on file prior to administration of any medication. A new form is required at the beginning of each school year. (per the O.R.C. 3313.713)
3. Medications must be brought to school by the parent/guardian. The medication must be received in the original container in which it was dispensed by the prescribing health care provider or licensed pharmacist. Over the counter medication must be in the original container.
4. It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to keep an adequate supply of medication at school.
5. Students may carry an inhaler with them if ordered by a physician. A properly completed school medication form for the inhaler is required to be on file with the school nurse. Students should report the use of the inhaler to the nearest school employee and be referred to the school nurse.
6. Medications are to be picked up by the parent/guardian at the end of the school year. Medications that are not picked up by the last day of school will be disposed of.
