Medications at School

All medicine must be kept with the health clerk.

1. Prescriptions must be well labeled in a pharmacy bottle with a student’s name and the type of medication. Your pharmacist can divide the medication into two bottles (one for home and one for school) at no extra charge.

  • Any prescription medications containing narcotics should not be brought to school as they will not be able to be administered by school personnel.

2. Over the counter medications, Spectrum High School does not have a supply of over-the-counter medications. These types of medications can be given to your child per your instructions, once we have received the “Parent Request for Short–Term Administration of Medication”. All over the counter medications must come in its original packaging.

3.Self-Administration of Non-Prescription Pain Medication.When a parent, student and health clerk agree that self-administration of non-prescription medication is appropriate for the student this procedure must be followed.

  • Student must carry the medication in its original container with no more than a supply for a 24-hour period and student must not share with other students.
