School Health Services

Medication:  Central Columbia School District will administer prescribed medication during school hours when absolutely necessary.  When medication must be given during school hours, designated school personnel will be permitted to administer or supervise the self-administration of the prescribed medication.  This medication must be provided in the original labeled pharmaceutical container and delivered to the school nurse by a parent or guardian.  The request form, completed in its entirety, must be presented to the school nurse prior to the administration of the medication.  The administration of non-prescription medications adheres to the aforementioned guidelines with the exception of the physician's signature.  Permission for the administration of Tylenol or Motrin, available through the health office, is indicated on each student's emergency card by the parent or guardian.  The parent/guardian must notify appropriate school personnel for medication administration at extra-curricular activities.
