Medication Administration

The New Bedford Public School’s Health Services Department encourages families to administer medication to students before or after school, if possible. In the event that any medication (including over the counter) needs to be given during the school day, the following documentation must be provided:

 

1. Medication Order completed by a licensed prescriber

2. Authorization for dispensing medication form completed by a parent/guardian

 

Medication will not be given at school without this completed documentation.

 

You may obtain copies of these forms by visiting with your child’s school nurse, or by downloading the forms listed below:

 

State Regulation Letter for Prescribed Drugs-English

Please note that medication must be delivered to the school by an adult in its original pharmacy labeled container. Medications cannot be placed in a plastic bag and brought to school. NO child is permitted to bring their own medication to school, or bring it home with them.
