• To promote a safe and healthy school environment, and to support the "drug-free" philosophy of the District, our medication administration practices seek to minimize as much as possible the amount of medicines brought to our campuses each day. This protective attitude regarding medication allows secondary students to bring/take only those medications that are essential to their health and ability to function well and safely at school.
    If it is necessary for a student to take medicine during the school day, a parent/guardian must complete the "Medication Administration Request" for the school nurse to keep on file. The medication label must match the parent permission form. The form is on the web site as Parental permission for medication at school. It may be printed off and sent with the student.
    Middle school students must come to the health room to receive prescription medications, although, with appropriate doctor's orders, they may carry their own inhalers.
    Secondary students (middle school and high school), with parent consent, may carry small (limited to a one or two day's supply) amounts of nonprescription, over-the-counter medicines, such as aspirin, acetaminophen and the like, and self-administer according to the directions on the container labeled with his or her name.
    All medicines brought to District campuses must be in the original properly labeled container, with the student's name, without regard as to whether it is prescription, over-the-counter, or self- or other-administered.
    Herbal preparations, anabolic steroids, dietary supplements of any type, vitamins, weight reduction, muscle building and performance enhancing aids are not considered essential during school hours/activities and are not allowed to be taken during those times unless administered by a parent
    Medications (including over-the-counter, dietary/herbal supplements of any type, and anabolic steroids) may not be shared with other students under any circumstances. Any violations of these standards are considered infractions subject to consequences outlined in the Student Code of Conduct/Discipline Management Plan.
