Medication at School

Medication at School

Drugs and Medications

If medication must be taken during school hours, the California Education Code requires a form to be signed by the physician and parent. The Authorization for Medication form is available on the CNUSD website. Parents or guardians must bring medication and Authorization for Medication signed by the doctor personally to the office. All medications, including inhalers, must be in a properly labeled container from the pharmacy. They will be kept in a secure place at school.  Non-prescription drugs (e.g., aspirin, cough lozenges, medicated chapsticks, and lotions) are not allowed at school. Do not put any medication in your child’s lunch box or backpack, as children cannot carry medications with them.  If you have any questions regarding procedures, call the school health clerk or secretary.  Students must be fever free for 24 hours without taking fever-reducing medication in order to attend school.
