As per district guidelines, over-the-counter medications are not routinely stocked in the nurse’s office. Therefore, medication can only be dispensed with permission from the parent or guardian, as well as authorization from a prescriptive authority, such as an MD, NP, or PA.
This means that if there is a likelihood that your child may need to have access to medication during the school year for recurring issues – such as headaches, menstrual cramps, musculoskeletal pain, a sports injury, or seasonal allergies – please have your student come to the nurse’s office to request a medication authorization. After receiving this authorization, signed by both your student’s guardian and the primary care provider, the student may bring that specific medication to be stored in the nurse’s office and given to them as needed throughout the school year.
