High School Nurse

The South Williamsport Area School District has established the following policy regarding the administration of medications. All efforts should be made to administer medication at home; however, when medication must be administered during school hours the following guidelines must be followed:

Administration of Prescription Medication Policy

  • Name of student
  • Identification of medication
  • Purpose of medication
  • Dosage of medication
  • Date and time medication is to be administered
  • Possible side effects, if any
  • Physician’s signature and phone number
  • Signature of parent/guardian

The nurse may make exception to this requirement at her discretion provided all other guidelines are followed.

  • The student’s name
  • Identification of medication
  • Directions for administration
  • Physician’s name

Unsupervised, self-administration of medication is not permitted unless cleared through the health office. In some situations (such as inhalers used for asthma or an Epipen used for bee stings), it may be necessary for medication to be cleared through the health office.
