Administration of Medication


Periodically, parents and physicians request that the students take medication during schools hours. Parents/guardians should be encouraged to develop a schedule so that the necessity for taking medication at school will be minimized or eliminated. Each principal shall designate a person(s) on staff to administer medications according to guidelines. The first dose of any new medication should NOT be administered during school hours due to the possibility of an allergic reaction. Refer to the OCPS Board Policy on Medication.
