All medication will be administered only with the signed consent of the parent/guardian and under the assessment/discernment of FCA staff. Please note that all medications administered are documented. If your child requires medication during the school day, including medication such as an inhaler and/or an EPI-PEN, a Medication Administration Form must be on file in the clinic.
The form must be signed by a parent (and by a physician for prescription medication) annually.
It is recommended that the first dose of any new medication be administered at home.
Prescription medications must be brought to the school nurse by the parent in the current, original, properly labeled container, as dispensed by the pharmacist or physician. The parent must deliver ALL medication (over-the-counter and prescription) to the school nurse for verification and inventory. NO medication of any kind may be carried on a student’s person without permission from FCA Staff, with the exception of cough drops. All medication must be picked up by the parent at the end of the school year or upon discontinuation of use. Any medication not picked up by the end of the school year will be discarded.
