Medication Rules

For the protection of all students, BISD has some very strict rules regarding medications at school.

1.  A parent's signature is required for ALL medications, prescription or non-prescription/over the counter,  which are needed at school.

2. A physician's signature is required for all prescription medications to be given at school.

3.  A physician's signature is required for all non-prescription/over the counter medication to be given at school for more than 3 days in one month.

4.  All medications are to be brought into school by an adult and in its original container or prescription bottle. For prescription medications please request your pharmacist to separate the prescriptions into two bottles, one for school and one for home.

5. Students are NOT allowed to have medications in their possession on school grounds unless prior authorization was made with your campus nurse or principal. If your child has an asthma inhaler or an Epi-pen please see your campus nurse to discuss your child’s health plan.

6.  It is important that the school nurse be aware of your child’s medical needs/conditions. For your child’s safety, please make sure you discuss these with your child’s school nurse.
