Medication Policy

All medications, including over the counter medicine and cough drops, must have a signed physician’s order on the Berkeley Co. Administration of Medication Form in order for medication to be given at school. Medication given 3 times a day should be administered at home. Medications may NOT be transported to and from school by the student unless authorized for emergency use by the physician as in the case of inhalers. Medications must be in the original container from the pharmacy and properly labeled. At the end of the school year all leftover medication will be disposed of unless picked up by the parent/guardian in a timely manner. A new order from the physician is required each school year.
