Medication Policy

Medication Policy Medications

According to regulations set by the State of New Jersey, it is required that you provide a written prescription from your child"s doctor for any and all medication that is to be administered during school hours. This also includes all over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Motrin, Advil, Visine eye drops, etc.

Please understand that no exceptions will be made, as this is a mandate from the State of New Jersey and not just a district policy.

If you feel that your child may need any medications during school hours, the following procedures must be followed:

  • Medication must be brought to school in the original container, labeled with the child"s name, name of medication, dosage, and the physician"s name.

  • Medication must be brought to school by the parent. Children may not bring any medication to school.
  • All medication will be kept and administered in the Health Office.
  • If your child is taking medication on a long-term basis, we request that you notify the School Nurse, even if that medication is not taken in school. This information may be vitally important in case of an emergency situation.
