- In order to ensure student safety and health, the Polk County School Board has established a policy for the administration or medications during school hours.
- If your child must be given medication of any kind during school hours, including over the counter medications, you have the following choices:
- You, or an adult designated by you in writing, may come to school and give the medication to your child.
- You may get a copy of the Authorization for Medication form from your child’s school an take it to your child’s physician, medical provider, the Health Department or a walk-in clinic. This form must be filled out and signed by the doctor/mid-level practitioner and the parent/legal guardian. Once complete, return this form to your child’s school. Medication may be given at school only when an Authorization for Medication form is on file.
- ONLY an adult may transport medications to and from the school clinic.
- ONLY lip balm, saline solution, and sunscreen are allowed without special permission.
