When a student is required to take medication prescribed by a physician during school hours, two prerequisites are needed:
- Written permission for the nurse to dispense the medicine must be signed by a parent and the doctor before any such medicine will be dispensed.
- The medicine, which is limited to five-day supply, must have the prescriptive label. The medicine will be kept in a locked cabinet and dispensed by the nurse. If necessary, the form must be updated at the request of the school nurse.
