STUDENT MEDICATION - NEW FORMS - DOCTOR'S SIGNATURE REQUIRED

Halton District School Board has changed the permission form that is required for schools to be able to administer prescription drugs to students during the school day.  Please ensure that if your child requires medication to be administered during the school day (e.g., epi-pen, asthma inhaler, oral medications, etc.) that you and your child's doctor have completed this new form prior to the start of school in September.  If medication is prescribed throughout the school year, your child's doctor must complete their section of this form so please take it to the appointment with you.
There is also a new form for students to self-administer medication while at school or at a school sponsored event.
The school will be unable to accept any prescription medications from parents or students without the appropriate completed form.

REMINDER:  Board staff will not administer non-prescription medication to a student.
