Administration of Medications
The California Education Code states that any student who is required to take medication prescribed by a physician during the regular school day, may be assisted by the school nurse or other designated school personnel if the district receives: (1.) a written statement from the physician detailing the method, amount and time schedules that the medication is to be taken and (2.) a written statement from the student’s parent/guardian authorizing the school district to administer the medication. (E.C. 49422, 49423)
Medication at School form: Please return form, along with the medication to Student Services or School Nurse. Forms can also be obtained in the front office of Central Union High School.
