If your child will be taking medication at school during the year, a Physician Request to Administer Medication form must be filled out and returned to the main office along with the medicine. All prescription medications require a prescriber’s signature. Visit the Family Resources page to locate the form for prescription medications.
Students may not carry prescription or non-prescription medicine on their person. The exception to this rule involves students carrying their rescue inhalers and/or emergency Epi-pens. Please telephone the district-wide nurse (419-698-6000) or the nurse in your building to discuss criteria for self-carrying these two medications. State law requires that a Physician Request form be completed and signed by the prescriber and the parent.
The school does not provide Tylenol, Advil, or other pain or fever reliever to students. If your child needs to take a non-prescription medicine on a regular or occasional basis, bring in the medicine in its original container. Visit the Family Resources
page to locate the Non-prescription medicine form. Non-prescription medication does not require a prescriber signature.
All medicine must be accurately labeled with the child’s name, medication and dosage instructions. The medicines are kept in a locked cabinet and administered from there. We attempt to keep accurate records of medication dosing with a log for each individual student. Remember that NO medication may be taken at school without a signed permission form.
All medication must be collected by the parent/guardian at the end of the school year. Any meds left after the 15th of June will be destroyed, this includes epi-pens and inhalers. No medications may be held over for use the following school year. A new medication form is required each school year.
