Medication Guidelines


    If at all possible, Parents/Guardians are advised to give medications at home.
    Students will be given medication at school when the medication is prescribed or ordered by a physician, after a parent/guardian completes a Medication Permission Form, and if the medication must be given during school hours to maintain sufficient health to participate in the school program.
    Narcotics will not be given at school.
     Failure to adhere to the non-prescription (over the counter) medication regulation may be considered a violation of the substance abuse policy.  
    The complete Medication Policy can be found on the Augusta County School Website, Administration, and Augusta County Policy Manual, page 455-459 addresses Medication administration guidelines.
    Parents should also sign an exchange of information form as well.  The nurses use this to obtain  documentation from the physician for medication changes, etc.   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Regional School Health Coordinator, Neeyle Kochanwicz or ask your school nurse, Lindsey Cash
