As school nurses, we understand that it may be necessary for your student to take medication during the school day.
ALL MEDICATIONS ARE TO BE LEFT AT THE NURSE’S OFFICE!
Prescription medications must be authorized by a physician or health care provider. Medications must be in appropriately labeled prescription bottles; accompanied by the appropriate Mat-Su School District Medication Authorization Form indicating the reason for the medication and the time it is to be given. Ask your pharmacist to give you a labeled bottle for school and another one for home. All medications must be delivered to the school by the parent/guardian or his/her adult representative. We ask for your co-operation as we are primarily concerned with your student’s safety.
The only OTC medications we school nurses are authorized to give your student with your signed permission on the health registration form are: Acetaminophen (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), Tums, and cough drops.
