Beeville ISD is committed to ensuring your child’s best day while at school. Although, every effort should be made to avoid administering medications while at school, we recognize that there may be times you, and your child’s doctor will require that medications and treatments be given during school hours.
ALL of the following conditions MUST be met BEFORE ANY medications are adminstered by school school staff:
- Except for emergency medications such as asthma inhalers, Epi-Pens, Diastat, ONCE DAILY, and TWICE DAILY, MEDICATIONS MUST BE GIVEN AT HOME.
- A complete Parent Request for School Assistance in Administering Medication form must be turned in to the school nurse or principal (click the link to download and print the form).
- School personnel cannot administer medications if there is any missing information on the form. Please complete entirely. If needed, obtain Doctor’s order prior to bringing the medication to school.
- All medications requiring special instructions, or to be administered longer than 10 days, MUST have a doctor’s order with the prescribing doctors signature and office number (contact your school nurse for questions).
- Prescription medications must be in the prescribing pharmacy container, with original prescription label including: student’s name, the name of the drug, instructions for taking the medication, the prescription number, and name of prescribing physician (you may ask your pharmacist for an extra “SCHOOL SUPPLY” container). .
- Over the counter medications and topical ointments must be in the original container and not expired. Please lable the medication with your child’s full name, age, date of birth, and grade.
- These medications can only be given according to the manufacturer recommendations (the directions on the box or bottle) for a maximum of 10 days, unless specific, signed Doctor’s orders are written. See your school nurse if you have any questions.
