Answer: Students are not allowed to carry medications or to self-administer their medications on the campus except under certain circumstances (Asthma inhalers, EpiPens); consult with the school nurse for more information. If your child is required to take prescribed medication during school hours, you and the medical practitioner must sign a completed permission form that is available at the school nurse's office. Consult with the school nurse about the “Practitioner's Written Order/Parent Consent” form that requires a practitioner's signature if there is not a signed written practitioner's order for the medication. Medications from Mexico cannot be administered. Only medication, in its original container and properly labeled and prescribed by a practitioner licensed to practice in the state of Texas, will be administered. The school nurse shall return unused medication only to the parent/legal guardian.
