Tulsa Public Schools Medication Policy Overview

~The student's legal custodian or person responsible for student's care must deliver
    medication and relevant equipment to the health clinic in person or designate another
    adult to deliver.
 ~Medication must be in the original container.  Each container must have the student's
    name, name and strength of medication, expiration date, dosage, and directions for
    administration.  In addition, prescription medications must have the prescription label
    with the name of the licensed physician  or dentist, the date, name, address and phone
    number of the pharmacy.
 ~Over the counter medications must be appropriate for the age and weight of the student.
    Any medications not indicated as appropriate for the student's age or weight must be
    accompanied by written orders from the student's physician.
 ~Medications containing Aspirin will only be administered with written instructions from
    the student's physician.
 ~All new medications or changes in dosage must be accompanied by written authorization
    from the student's legal custodian or person responsible for student's care.  Authorization
    forms are available in the health clinic (printable forms now available under Health
    Department and Other Links) .
 ~Only a one- (1) week supply of medication may be brought to the clinic .  Requests for
    exemption will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
 ~Please ask your pharmacist for a "school bottle" so you will have the appropriate
    information at home.  It is also helpful for us to have a second bottle, properly labeled, to
    send with your child on field trips.
 ~Self-administration forms are available in the health clinic for those students that must
    keep their medication with them.  Students may not self-administer any controlled
    medication.
