Medication at School
Medication is defined to mean all drugs, whether prescription or “over-the-counter”. It is the policy of the Bainbridge Island School District not to give medicine to students at school, except at the request of the parent and a licensed practitioner with prescriptive authority. If it is necessary to take medication during the school day, please follow these steps:
- Parents have the Medication at School form completed by their child’s health care provider https://bit.ly/2YRE94n
- Parents bring in the completed form and the medication in the original container to the office
- Please bring only the required number of doses to the school and keep the remainder of medication at home
- Students are not allowed to transport the medication (unless the medication is an inhaler)
BISD School Board Policy 3416 and Procedure P3416 outline the district’s policy regarding Medication at School.
