Medications, Allergies, & Asthma

If your child has a serious life threatening allergy &/or asthma, and requires medication while at school, please to download the appropriate paperwork found below: - Asthma Action Plan - Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency (FARE) Care Plan Form - Medication Permission Form  - Self-Medication Release Form - Medical Emergency/Medication Admin. Have these documents completed by your child’s physician, signed by a parent and returned to the Briarcliff nurse’s office, with the required medication, by the start of the new school year. Please read the additional three informational sections below regarding At School, School Trips, & End of School:
At School

All medications, including all over-the-counter drugs, to be taken by any student in school will be administered by the School Nurse following the guidelines below:

Students requiring medication at school must have a written statement of permission to administer medication from his/her physician which identifies the type of medication, dosage and time schedule and reason for medication.
A parent's permission note to the school nurse must accompany the physician's permission also with the identity of medication, dosage and the time schedule.
All medication must be in the original container, both for prescription and nonprescription medication, with the label clearly visible and updated, as needed.

School Trips
For children needing medication on any trips away from school, the parents are responsible for making the necessary arrangements for their child to receive medication during that time. Teachers and aides are not responsible for medication.

End of School
All medications kept by the school nurse must be picked up by a parent at the end of the school year or they will be discarded. We cannot be responsible for items left over the summer.
