2019-20 Medication Drop-Off
School buildings will be open August 12th-20th from 10 am to 2 pm to drop-off medication authorization orders and medications in a pharmacy labeled container.   
 
Medications
Medications can be stored and administered in school on a daily, temporary, or as-needed basis under the supervision of a Certificated School Nurse. Out-of-State Medication Orders are valid in school up to 30 days from the date of your student's enrollment. You will need orders from a Washington State provider within 30 days. 

The following must be in place for before your student can receive medication in school (for prescription AND over-the-counter medications) :

  1. Authorization/Orders: The form that you need depends on the type of medication.
  2. Correct Medication
    • Medication must be in its original labeled container from the pharmacy.
    • The student name, medication name, dose, and instructions must match the order.
    • Medication must not be expired.
    • If tablets need to be cut in half, this must be done at home.

School Board Policy 3416 is outlined by the statutory guidelines of RCW 28A.210.260. Nurses may delegate administration of some medications. The provision of the nursing care delegation statute and regulations can be found under RCW.79.260 and WAC 246-840-010.


 

Dear Families,

We are unable to store medications over summer break, if your student has medications at school please remember to pick-up medications for your students by June 26th of this year.  

To ensure that your child has a healthy and safe start to the 2019-2020 school year, there are a few things we'll need from you by August 20th to start their school year right. 

  • Medication with the pharmacy label

  • Medication administration consent form signed by parent and prescribing health care professional

Any medicine brought into the schools whether it be prescribed or over the counter, needs to have a signed medical form on file with their school.  These will be sent either by email or postal mail.

I know the start of school is a few months away, but we wanted to give you enough time to get these items to us.   If you have questions or concerns please call the main office at your student’s by June 26th. Schools will be open August 12-16 from 10 am-2pm only to receive medication, medication orders, and health forms.   

Thank you.
Edmonds School District Health Services
