Medication at School and Students with Life Threatening Medical Conditions

Posted September 11, 2020


All student prescription medication (with the exception of puffers) must be stored and administered from the office. It is important for the safety of the child taking the medicine and the other students in the school. In order to give any medication, we must have the appropriate form completed and signed by a parent or guardian. As well, the container must have the pharmaceutical sticker on it indicating the name of the child and directions for administering the medication. Please call the school when you require these forms.

Students with life-threatening medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, or those who are at risk of anaphylaxis due to life-threatening allergies, require the development of a Plan of Care. These students may require support for their medical needs while at school, during school-based activities, and/or while using school transportation services.

There is a distinct Plan of Care for students with Anaphylaxis, Asthma, Diabetes and Epilepsy.  In addition, there is a general LTMC Plan of Care for any condition that is not covered under the other four forms. If your child requires such a plan please call the school for more information.
