Medication At School
pictures of medication

Industrial ISD does not stock medication for students, including over-the-counter medication such as Tylenol, Motrin, Advil, Tums, etc. The exception is a few standing order medications. For students to be medicated, parents must provide the medication. The medication can be stored in the nurse's office for future use.

The following form must also be completed to give the school nurse or other personnel permission to administer the medication you provided.

Medication Form - English

Medication Form - Spanish

All medications require a signature from both the parent and a licensed provider (MD, DO, PA, or NP). The campus' school nurse may be able to assist in obtaining a signature by faxing in some cases.

Industrial ISD personnel will not administer any medications that are not FDA-approved. This includes any herbal sustances, dietary supplements, and anabolic steroids. Exceptions may be granted if prescribed by a physician and required by the IEP or 504 Plan of a student with a disability. Reliable information must be provided in writing and signed by the prescribing physician regarding the safe use of the product, including side effects, toxicity, drug interactions, and adverse effects.

Guidelines About Medication
  • Medications must be current and nonexpired.

  • Medication must be provided in the original container with the child's name. Do not send medication in a bag or different bottle.

  • Students should never have medication on them at school (see self-carry medications for exception).

  • If you are dropping off medication for your student, please send it directly to the nurse's office and ensure you have completed all forms necessary.

  • Medication should NOT be sent on the bus with your child.

Self-Carry Medication (Emergency)

The only exception for allowing students to carry medication on their person includes students who carry emergency medications on them such as diabetic supplies (insulin or glucagon), an asthma inhaler, Epi-Pens, etc. If your child will be carrying any medications on them, please complete the form below.

Self Carry/Administration Medication Authorization

This requires that students are responsible, know how and when to administer the medication, and understands the risks of other students using their prescription. The physician's signature, parent's signature, student's signature, and nurse's signature are all required. This also requires that the student be responsible about taking the medication with them on field trips, to practices, games, and other extracurricular events.

Please contact the campus nurse with any further questions.
