Prescription Medication Authorization

All prescription medicine carried or taken by a student must be accompanied by a PRESCRIPTION AUTHORIZATION FORM filled out by the parent. Only the prescribed dose per day may be sent to the school. Medication must be clearly labeled with the student’s name, and the dosage and name of the medication, and the medicine must be sent to the main office. All medication including over-the-counter medicine must be kept in the school office. School staff or monitors may administer acetaminophen or ibuprofen with parent’s permission, as indicated on the medical form.

All student medical information not otherwise public knowledge will be regarded as confidential by DCA and treated as such.
