Medication can only be administered by the nurse upon receipt of written permission from both the child’s medical provider and the parent/guardian. All forms are available under health office forms on this website.
- All medications require a doctor’s order that must be renewed each September. We cannot use last year’s orders. Forms are available for asthma, epipens and for all other medications there is a standard form. This applies even if your child will be receiving a medication temporarily (i.e. an antibiotic).
- All medications must be in the original bottle or package with the pharmacy label attached. If there are multiple medications or pieces of equipment, please place them in a Ziploc bag with your child’s name clearly written on the outside.
- In order to ensure the safety of your child and all children at Woodrow Wilson, the child should not transport medications to school. All medications should be brought to the nurse’s office by a parent, guardian or other adult. Medications must be picked up by an adult at the end of the school year. All medications not picked up will be discarded.
- COUGH DROPS ARE A MEDICATION AND REQUIRE A NOTE. They must remain in the nurse’s office.
