Students may not carry medication on school grounds. All medications must be administered to the student by the school nurse, with the exception of insulin, asthma inhalers and epinephrine for severe allergic reactions.These are the only medications which may be carried by a student.
The over-the-counter (OTC) medication administration permission form in Aspen allows the school nurse to dispense stock over-the-counter medications to your student, such as Tylenol, Advil, cough medicine, Benadryl and antacids which have been pre-approved by our school physician.
If your child requires administration of other prescription or over-the-counter medications by the nurse during the school day, please provide a Prescription Medication Form signed by a parent and doctor. Parents (not students) should bring medication to school in the original container, which is appropriately labeled by the pharmacy.
If your child carries insulin, an inhaler or epinephrine injection, please have your doctor complete the appropriate forms available for download on the right.
If you child is attending an over night field trip and will require medication (prescription or over the counter), please download a form for each medication to be administered and complete it before the date of departure. This form must accompany the medication which needs to be in an original bottle with accurate pharmacy label.
