Medical treatment is the responsibility of the parent(s) and family physician. Medication, both prescription and over the counter, should be dispensed at home, rather than at school, whenever possible. The only exceptions involve special or serious problems where it is deemed absolutely necessary by the physician that the medication is given during school hours. In order for any medication (even Tylenol, cough drops, etc.) to be dispensed at school, an Administration of Medicine form signed by both the physician and parent must be on file in the school office. A new Administration of Medicine form is required each school year.
