Medication Administration Policy
Special Medical Issues
Ifyour child has any medical issues that we should be aware of, such as asthma, allergies (food, drugs, bees/wasps, environmental), seizures, diabetes, heart disease, etc., please, stop by the nurse's office.
If your child has asthma, please, bring an extra inhaler to the nurse's office to be available in the event of an asthma episode occurring during school hours. Also, have your physician complete an Asthma Action Plan or Food Allergy Plan for inclusion in your child's health folder.
Medications Taken at School
To ensure the well-being of every child at EEMS, please, remember that all medications, including over-the-counter preparations, brought to school must be delivered by the parent to the nurse's office to be dispensed by the nurse. The medication must be in the original container and include a note with the name of the medication, the time it is to be administered, and the reason it is being given, and an order from the physician.
Please remember that cough drops are considered an over the counter medication. Cough drops pose a choking hazard therefore, we urge parents to send a water bottle to school instead of cough drops.
**For safety concerns, please, do not have students bring medications to school.
