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
    • 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.
