Mt. Lebanon School Distirct Medication Administration
The administration of student medications, either prescription or non-prescription, during school hours is discouraged as there are safety concerns about students forgetting to take the medication, having a reaction to the medication, or other students taking the medication.
If a physician deems it medically necessary for students to take medications, either prescription or non-prescription, during the school day, the Authorization for Medication Form (#440), signed by the parent and completed and signed by the physician, must be returned to the Health Office with the medication in the appropriate pharmacy-labeled container (over-the-counter medications should be in original bottle). A new form is required for each medication change, dose change, time change and for each school year. It is the responsibility of the student to report to the Health Office for his/her medication.
Please remember that your child may not receive his/her medication if these procedures are not followed.
Please feel free to contact the school nurse if you have any concerns regarding this matter.
