MEDICATION GUIDELINES

Over-the-Counter Medications:
  • Over-the-counter medications are available in the clinic, but will only be administered with your permission. Please make sure the medical portion of Magnus is up to date each year.
  • If your child is taking an over-the-counter medication that we do not have in the clinic, you may bring the medication to our office. We are happy to administer it to him or her as needed with your permission.
Prescription Medications:
  • All prescription medications must be stored in the nurse’s office and require the prescription medication form to be filled out by a parent and the prescribing physician. The medication should be delivered to the nurse’s office by the parent and in a labeled bottle from the pharmacy.
  • Please do not send medication in a zip-top bag.
  • The only prescription medications that students may carry with them are asthma inhalers and epi-pens. In order to carry these medications, clearance will need to be made by the physician and parent. 
  • Asthma inhalers for Lower School students should be stored in the nurse’s office and accompany the asthma action plan.
