The school nurse will be responsible for giving the medication if she/he is in the building. If the nurse is not available, a secretary will supervise the student taking the medication.
It's preferred that inhalers for asthma be kept in the nurse's office. With a signed doctor's prescription and signed parental consent, the child may carry the inhaler. He/she must demonstrate to the nurse the use of the inhaler, and provide a back-up inhaler for the nurse's office.
NO other medicine should be kept with the student in his or her classroom. This district policy is for the protection of our students. Please understand that we do not make exceptions to this policy.
