Medication at School

When it is essential to a student’s health that medicine (including OTC) be taken during school hours:

  • There must be a written order from a licensed Arizona PCP stating the name of the medicine, the dosage and the time it is to be given or PCP can co-sign the parent medication consent form. Parent consent form must be completed. Medication must be FDA approved.
  • The medication must be in the original pharmacy or OTC container.
  • Forms for students to carry and self-administer Epi-pens and Inhalers are available from the health office, or from the link on the left.
  • Parents of Pre K-12th graders must hand deliver prescription medication to the school health office.
  • Supervision of medication administration protocol is managed by a Registered Nurse. In the nurse’s absence, medication will be administered by an agent/district employee designated by the principal; usually the health assistant or office secretary.

Over the Counter Medications (OTC)

  • All CFSD schools have standing medical orders for the administration of the following OTCs:
    • Acetaminophen and Tums in all schools.
    • Ibuprofen and Cough Drops in Middle and High Schools.
  • Each school year, students must have a Health Information/Emergency Form completed that includes consent for the above OTC medications.
  • In the event a different OTC medication or higher dosage than in standing orders is needed, the Request for Giving Medication at School Form must completed and signed by parent and co-signed by a healthcare provider, or a prescription note may be sent along with the consent form.


Forms

The Health Office requires all students to have a completed and signed Health Information/Emergency Form. This information is needed for your student’s health record to provide the appropriate care on a daily and an emergency basis. Parents/guardians should notify the School Nurse if the student has a serious medical condition.
