Medication Policy

Medication Policy

According to the Texas Law and local School Board Policy, employees of the district may administer medication to student provided:

  1. The medication is sent from home with the student; and

  2. The school district has received a written request (as outlined below) to administer the medication from the parent, legal guardian.

  3. When administering prescription medication, the medication must be in the original container and be properly labeled with the student’s name, name of the drug, the directions concerning dosage and directions for prescribed times for giving the medication.

  4. Non-prescription medication (over-the-counter drugs) may be given for a limited time with the written request from the parent. We will not exceed the recommended dosage without a physician’s written order.

The student should not carry the medication with him/her, or administer it to himself/herself unless specified by a physician!

NO MEDICATION WILL BE GIVEN UNLESS IT IS IN THE ORIGINAL CONTAINER

The School District, its Board of Trustees, and its Employees cannot assume responsibility for adverse reaction to medications. If you have any questions, please call your school nurse.
