Medication Form

CCPS Health Services Information

 

Medications

New medication forms are needed every school year.  Blank medication forms are available from the nurses or the CCPS website at www.carrollk12.org.  Medications need to be brought to school by a parent/legal guardian along with a completed CCPS medication form.  Controlled medications need to be counted with nurse when first brought to school.  Students CANNOT transport medications to or from school. The prescription label on the bottle must match the completed CCPS medication form.  All prescription medication must have a prescription label on them.  This includes inhalers, epipens, as well as medication bottles.  No medication will be accepted without the correct prescription label and a completed CCPS medication form also matching the prescription label.  If there is a situation where a bottle is needed at home as well as at school, ask the pharmacy to provide an extra labeled medication bottle for school.  All medications require a parent and doctor signature and CCPS medication form.  This includes over-the-counter medications.  Also, please provide unopened medication containers which don’t expire until the end of the school year.

Click on the CCPS Health Services link for information concerning CCPS Policies and Procedures and to download any forms that maybe needed for your child to attend school.  (medical, dental, physical, surgery, medications).

We also request that, if your child is ill, has a fever, is vomiting  that they remain home until symptom free 24 hours. Attendance is very important, however, it is as important for our students and staff to minimize the amount of contagious germs spread during the day. If your child has a fever of 100F or greater, Carroll County Public Schools has initiated a new policy as recommended by the Center for Disease Control.  This policy states that children with a fever of 100F or greater cannot return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of a fever reducer (Motrin or Tylenol)
