Medication Forms and Information

According to Board Policy and the Public School Code of Pennsylvania, school nurses may not administer or dispense prescription medications without written permission from a parent/guardian and a doctor. Student Medication Forms are available from the school nurse and can also be found on the District website. These forms need to be renewed each school calendar year. In addition, any student with asthma, seizures, allergies or diabetes, must have an action plan specific to their condition completed by the physician, parents and students if applicable. These forms should be available from your student’s doctor; they are also available from the school nurse and on the District website. The school nurse is also not permitted to administer over the counter medications without a doctor's and a parent's written permission. In most instances, the District physician has signed standard orders for over the counter medications. These medications include aspirin, Tylenol, Visine etc. These forms are also available from the school nurse and on the District website. 

  • Prescription medication may be administered only at the written request of the child’s physician.
