If your child will need to have ANY medications administered here at school, (even over-the-counter medications), you will need to provide the clinic with a medication permission order (generic versions are available from your doctor, or you can stop by the school office and Mrs. Struve can provide you with one), signed by both you and your child’s doctor. If the medication is a prescription, it will need to be in the original packaging with the prescription label attached (no pills in baggies, mislabeled/expired pill bottles, inhalers without the box bearing the prescription label, etc).
