What do I need to know about my child receiving medications at Kiddie Prep School?

The giving or application of medication, providing dietary supplements, making special variation of diet, and carrying out medical procedure, shall be done only on a written order or prescription from a physician to the parents, or to the school with the knowledge of the parents.

Medications prescribed for an individual child shall be kept in the original container bearing the original pharmacy label showing the prescription number, date filled, physician’s name, directions for use, and the child’s name.  When the medication is no longer needed, medication shall be returned to the parents or destroyed.

Parents need to fill out a “Medication Form” available under the “forms” tab or available in each classroom through the teacher.  The completed form should be given to the classroom teacher along with the medication and dosing spoon.
