Medication must be furnished by the parent/guardian and in the original container labeled with the student's name, the physician's name, the amount to be given, and the number of times to be administered.
Prescription medications must have a current pharmacy label. An approximate time of day the medication should be taken (e.g., before or after meals) and the length of time the child may need to take this medication will be included. OTC medications must be in the original container labeled with the student's name, dosage, and time to be administered.
The nurse may call the doctor if there are any questions regarding this medication. Medications that are prescribed once, twice, or three times a day can be given at home. Should school personnel feel that it is in the best interested of the student not to receive this medication on a certain day, they will notify the parent/guardian. TISD & its employees accept no liability for consequences of over-the-counter or prescription medications administered with a parent/guardian written consent.
