Medication During School Hours
For your child’s safety and to comply with the state law, a very strict procedure for giving medication will be followed at CISCO ISD.
If your child must take any medication at school, the following requirements must be fulfilled:
1. ALL MEDICATIONS are to be dispensed through the office or nurse office. NO MEDICATIONS ARE TO BE KEPT BY THE STUDENT WHILE AT SCHOOL.
2. All prescription medications must be in the original prescription container labeled with the student’s name, the dosage and times for the medication to be given.
3. All over-the-counter non-prescription medications must also be labeled with the student’s name. This can simply be written on with a pen or marker.
4. A signed note from the parent or guardian giving school personnel permission to give the medication must be sent with the medication. The note must also give the time and instructions for administration.
THE LAW PROHIBITS THE SCHOOL FROM GIVING ANY MEDICATIONS WITHOUT WRITTEN PARENTAL CONSENT.
