Education and care staff cannot administer medication taken by other means. These include medications that must be injected with a needle. Ask the school about these types of medications. They need special planning and sometimes the help of a nurse. Staff only help with medications that cannot be taken before or after school. For example, some medications should be taken three times a day — you can give them yourself at breakfast, after school, and at the end of the day. Educational and caregiver staff can help take medication: students should not take the first dose of a new medication at school. The first dose should always be monitored by a parent or health care professional. The only exception is emergency medicines. If your child needs medication to administer at school, you must complete the following medication plan. In some cases, the plan must be completed by a doctor, for example, for drugs mentioned in section 8 or for regular drugs in progress, this is explained in more detail in the form above.
There is also an updated asthma plan form and anaphylaxis plan for students who need it. We ask that you print these forms or request a copy from the Front Office and take it to your next family doctor appointment. If your child brings medication to school, make sure it is in the original pharmacy container, including the label. This will help staff identify it. If a student needs to take medication during schooling or in the school camp, you must inform the school. You can let them know by asking your doctor to fill out a form for the medication agreement. Students cannot take medication at school or camp without a medication agreement form. Schools store medicines safely at school or at the campsite. Emergency medications that your child may require immediate access to are an exception. For example, an asthma tampon to relieve asthma.
Your child can keep this with them, or you can arrange an employee to take care of it.
