The School Board recognizes that students sometimes may need to take prescribed medication during the school day in order to be able to attend school without jeopardizing their health. In such cases, when the district has received written statements from the student's physician and parent/guardian as required by law, designated personnel shall assist the student in taking the medication and be afforded appropriate liability protection.
A student may be permitted to carry medication that has been prescribed or ordered by a physician to stay on or with the student due to a pressing medical need.
