In order for a student to take medication at school (even over-the-counter medications), a licensed healthcare provider’s order for medication must be on file at school. Visit our Medications page
for forms and full information.
Medication may not be transported to or from school by students. Any unused medication must be picked up by parent/guardian at the conclusion of the school year or the designated school staff will properly dispose of it.
Under certain conditions, students may be allowed to carry prescribed inhalers and/or prescribed Epi Pens for asthma or severe allergies.
Written directions for this must come from both the parent/guardian and the physician. The school nurse shall consult with the parent/guardian and/or physician before the student is allowed to carry a prescribed inhaler. If you have any questions regarding medications at school, please contact your child’s school nurse or the CK Health Services Department at 662-1070.
