Medicine at School (Forms)

Any prescription or over the counter medication that must be administered during school hours should be accompanied by a written request from a parent/guardian. For student safety, all medications should be transported to and from school by a parent/guardian. All medications must be in their original, properly-labeled container. 

 
 

MEDICATION AT SCHOOL

A Medication Permission Slip must be signed by the parent/guardian.  It can be obtained from the school nurse or by clicking the link on this page.
 
 

ASTHMA ACTION PLAN

If the medication is to be used for asthma, an Asthma Action Plan must be completed and signed by the student's physician and submitted with the medication.
The 77th Texas Legislature enacted House Bill 1688, which amends the Education Code to entitle a student with asthma to possess and self-administer prescription asthma medication while on school property or at a school-related event or activity. The bill specified the conditions under which a student is entitled to possess and self-administer asthma medication. If a physician feels it is medically necessary for a student with asthma to carry and self-administer prescription asthma medication, the student must have on file in the school nurse's office an Asthma Action Plan form provided by the State of Texas. This form can be obtained from the school nurse. The Asthma Action Plan must be filled out each year by the student's prescribing physician and must be signed by both the prescribing physician and the parent.
 

ANAPHYLAXIS ACTION PLAN

If the medication is to be used for anaphylaxis, an Anaphylaxis Action Plan must be completed and signed by the student's physician and submitted with the medication.
 

SEIZURE ACTION PLAN

If the medication is to be used for seizures, a Seizure Action Plan must be completed and signed by the student's physician and submitted with the medication.
