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.

Health Care

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.
