    • Dosage of medication to be given
    • Time medication to be given
    • Reason for medication
    • Physician's signature and phone number

    A form is required for each medication.  This form must be renewed at the beginning of each school year.

    All medication must be brought to school in the original container.  All medication, with the exception of some inhalers, must be kept locked in the office or clinic.  Inhalers may be kept by a student with specific orders from a physican.  All other medication should be brought to the office immediately upon entering school.
