School Forms: Doctor's Signature Required

August 18, 2021

MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION POLICIES

The safety and welfare of our students is always our highest priority. As such, The Logan School works with a nurse consultant to ensure that our medical policies are in line with the law and to take our staff through various medication training sessions. Below are the guidelines we follow at the suggestion of our nurse consultant. This is very important information so please do read it carefully.


If you have any questions about any of the following or medication administration at school, please contact Roxy.


EMERGENCY MEDICATION ACTION PLANS - If your child has an emergency medication action plan (Asthma Care Plan, Anaphylaxis Plan, Migraine Action Plan, or any other medication that is prescribed by your child's doctor that will need to be administered at school), the medication check-in will take place on Aug. 19, from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m., and during conference days on Aug. 20 and 23, from 7:30 a.m. - 3 p.m., at the front desk. 


  • Children may only SELF-CARRY their epi-pens AND/OR inhalers if you provide a self-carry contract (signed by the parent and doctor), to Roxy. There must also be a second inhaler and/or epi-pen at the school in addition to the one your child is self-carrying. If only one epi-pen and/or inhaler is available, then it must remain with the school. If a child is given approval to self-carry, that epi-pen and/or inhaler must be on their person (in a pocket or a fanny pack) at all times. Their school backpack is not acceptable. It must be easily accessible. Download the self-carry contract.


MEDICATIONS FOR *OVERNIGHT FIELD TRIPS will need to be checked-in with the EE teachers PRIOR to the trip. This means that we will be scheduling medication check-in dates for each trip. If you will be sending medications on a trip with your child, you will be REQUIRED to check them in with the appropriate paperwork (which has been signed by the child’s doctor) PRIOR to the trip.


If medications and signed paperwork are not received prior to the trip, your child will not be allowed on the trip. Medications will NOT be accepted the day of the trip. We are asking that you only provide enough meds required for that trip. If it is a 4-day trip, please do not bring in a 30-day supply.


  • NON-FDA REGULATED “medications” will ARE NOT ALLOWED on overnight trips or at school. This includes Melatonin, all vitamins and any herbal supplements.


*We will be sending out information about fall overnight trips soon.


OTC MEDICATIONS such as ibuprofen/acetaminophen/naproxen, etc. will not be given out for any reason UNLESS it is prescribed by a doctor for a specified ailment and comes with an action plan signed by your doctor. For example, if your child has migraines and needs to take one of these medications, you must bring it in with this form, instructions signed by the child’s doctor that identifies what the symptoms are that allow us to give the medication to that child. Even if you have signed a letter or note in which you, the parent, give permission which"allows" us to give OTC medicines generically, we will not be able to do so without an action plan, signed by your child’s doctor.

If your child is required to take medications during the school day and is in IS or AS, they are responsible for coming to the front desk to get those meds. Children in Primary will be sent down (or brought) by their teacher at the appropriate time.
