Guidelines for the Administration of Medication in School
The administration of medication to pupils during school hours will be done only in
when the child's health may be jeopardized without it.
Staff members are prohibited from the administration of medication to students. When a child requires medication, his parents/guardians are responsible for its administration and may come to school to do so. The student's parent/guardian can also have the Memorial School "Medication Administration" form completed by their doctor authorizing the school nurse to administer the student's medication. This form is required for both prescription and "over-the-counter" medication, including cough drops.
Medication must be brought to the school by an ADULT in its original pharmacy container or "over-the-counter" packaging.
Cough syrups and cold pills should NOT be given at school.
Some children with life-threatening illnesses, who use inhalers or epi-pens, may carry them at school. Keep in mind special forms must be completed by the doctor and parent BEFORE they can carry these medications.
Feel free to contact Mrs. Fullum, our school nurse, if you have any questions ... 201-440-2782.
