Medication Procedure:

Lakewood Schools' medication procedure is designed to ensure the health and safety of all students. Prescription and over-the-counter medications are handled in the same manner.

Prescribed and over-the-counter medications will only be dispensed to those students providing the required authorization forms. These forms must be completed and signed by a physician, as well as the parent/guardian. See Medication Authorization Forms. A medication authorization form must be completed for each medication.   Forms must be renewed each school year.  

Under no circumstances will medication be administered if the appropriate forms, signed and dated by a physician and the parent/guardian, are not submitted. Any medication that is administered must be prescribed by a physician. Medication must to be brought to the school Health Center in the original container by an adult.

All medications will be dispensed from the Health Center; students are prohibited from carrying any prescription or over-the-counter medication. Students must provide written authorization from a physician to carry a rescue inhaler or Epi-pen.  See Authorization to Possess Epi-Pen or Authorization to Possess Inhaler  under Medication Authorization Forms.


Health Care Action Plans:

It is recommened that a health care action plan be developed for students with chronic medical conditions. If your child has diabetes, a seizure disorder, or a severe, life-threatening allergy, please have your child's physician complete the appropriate health care action plan. See Health Care Action Plans.

Please contact the nurse assigned to your child's school to discuss the need to develop an individualized health care action plan.
