Medications at School
The above link contains forms with important details regarding administration of medication to your student at school or on school sponsored activities. This includes all of our Adventure, Intensive and Field Work activities.
Please read through the page, and then complete the appropriate form(s) before bringing medications to the health office.
Please Note: Poudre School District considers all of the following a medication and requires one of the authorization forms completed for each medication.
- Any and all prescribed medications
- Any and all over the counter (OTC) medications
- Any and all supplements, homeopathic/herbal supplements, cough drops, vitamins, etc.
Our school is fortunate to have an experienced full-time Health Technician on staff as well as a school district Registered Nurse who visits weekly to address student health care as needed.
If your student has:
- specific health care needs
- daily medication
- or a chronic medical condition that requires supervision
Please be sure to include this information when you register your student for school or as a change in your student's health is discovered.
For certain medical conditions a Health Care Action Plan (HCAP) may be deemed necessary by your physician and the school district. A meeting with our school R.N. may be scheduled as health conditions dictate.
