Medication Procedures

Health attendant, Theresa Crosby  858-521-2808,   [email protected]

If your child is on medication, a “Physician’s Recommendation for Medication” form must be obtained from the school office, completed by your physician, and returned to school. NO MEDICATION WILL BE GIVEN AT SCHOOL WITHOUT THIS FORM. An adult must bring the medication to the school office. Children may at no time have medication in their possession. This includes aspirin, inhalers, and cough drops.

According to California State law, prescription and non-prescription medications are permitted to be taken at school only with a written statement from the physician AND a written statement from the parent or guardian. The Health Office has a form available titled “Authorization for Medication Administration”. 

Written information that must be provided is:
  • Student’s name
  • The name of the medication
  • Physician’s instructions detailing the date(s), method, amount and time medication is to be given
  • Parent/guardian and Physician signature
This information is required for all medications including “over-the-counter” Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold/allergy medicines, etc. All medications MUST be labeled with the student’s name and above information, in the original Rx or OTC container.
