Medications at School

Students who will need to take medications at school during the day are required to have the Request to Administer Medications form signed by both a doctor and parent.  Both the form and medication will need to be checked in by either the school nurse or trained staff.  The medication must be in a current bottle from the pharmacy with the description matching the label, along with the student's name and date of birth.  

If you as a parent, along with the student's physician agree that the student is responsible enough to carry their emergency medication on them during the school day, please complete that section on the Administration of Medication Form. If a situation occurs and we no longer feel comfortable with the student carrying their medication on them, we have the right to revoke the self carry policy.  We strongly encourage that a supply of this medication be signed into the office as a back up should your student not be in possession of this medication if an emergency arises. Please see the Student Medication Administration Procedures here.

Sports Physicals

Anyone interested in playing a sport sponsored through the Erlanger-Elsmere Schools must have a current sports physical completed by their primary care physician.
