Medications at school

Frequently asked questions

  1. Can my child bring medication at school if I send a parent or doctor’s note? NO - All medication must be brought to school in the original container and signed in with the nurse BY AN ADULT.
  2. Can I send just two tablets in a baggie if my child only needs one dose? NO- All medication must be brought to school in the original container.
  3. Are cough drops considered medication? Cough drops need to be signed in by an adult with the nurse and need to be in the original bag with expiration date.
  4. Can student bring skin or lip ointments and creams to apply as needed? Any medication ointment or cream (such as Abrevia®, Neosporin®, hydrocortisone, antibiotic ointment, antifungal cream, etc.) needs to be signed in by an adult with the nurse. Prescription ointments will require a doctor’s order to be given by the nurse.
  5. Can my child bring plain, unscented skin lotion, Chapstick®, Vaseline®, Aquaphor®, or other non-medicated lip or skin ointment? Yes- they can keep it with them and use it as needed for themselves.
  6. Does the nurse keep over-the-counter medication such as ibuprofen, Benadryl, Tylenol to give to students? No- Nurse does not keep stock medications at school except for life-threatening allergy injection. Any medication needed by the student must be signed in by the parent.
  7. Can I sign in a adult formulation of a medication (such as Motrin® or Tylenol®) and ask the nurse to only give one tablet? - No- all over the counter medications must be a children’s formula with your child’s age listed on the label directions.
  8. My child needs a medication every day at school. What is the procedure? Please email me at [email protected] with the name of the medication and what time of day the medication is to be given. I will send the appropriate paperwork to you for your doctor to complete and sign. Then, medication must be signed in by an adult in the original pharmacy labeled or unopened over the counter container with the completed form from student’s doctor.
  9. What if my child needs to take an antibiotic or prescription eye drop for just a few days? We will still need a doctor’s order to give a prescription medication. If this medication must be given at school, please contact me.


Points to remember:

  • All over the counter medications need to be in the original, unopened container.
  • All prescription medications need to be in the original pharmacy labeled container and will REQUIRE a doctor’s order BEFORE the nurse can give the medication.
  • All medications need to be in date. We cannot sign in or give expired medication.
  • All prescription labels need to read exactly as it is to be given such as “at lunch” or at “1pm” not just “once daily.”
  • Please email me with any questions.
