The school MD has given standing orders for basic medications that can be given at the discretion of the nurse unless otherwise stated by parents. These include but are not exclusive to Tums, Visine, Chloraseptic Spray, Orajel, Cough Drops, Benadryl Cream, and Hydrocortisone Cream. Children are not allowed to carry ANY type of medicine with them throughout the day unless special permission has been granted by the Health Office.

Short Term Medications (1 week or less)

Whenever a student requires medication at school, the medication must be brought directly to the nurse at the beginning of the day. Only medication in its original pharmacy container which states the name and telephone number of the pharmacy, the prescription number, the student's name, the name and dosage of the medication, directions for administering and the name of the physician will be accepted. Prescription medication also requires written permission from the parent.

Long-Term Medications (Daily, PRN, or greater than 1 week)

The School Nurse may administer any form of medication that is in the original container and is accompanied by the District’s Medication Form completed and signed by the child’s doctor and parent/ guardian. Forms can be obtained through your School Nurse or by visiting the District’s Web site, or you can contact the Health Office at 732-329-1043 ext 3012

***If your child should suffer from asthma or allergies that require medications to be kept in school, please contact the health office for further instructions.***
