When a student needs to take any medication during the school day, the following are required:
> Written doctor's order (can be this form or a doctor may write their own order) - it must included student's name, name of medication, dose, time/frequency to be given and route.
> Signed Parent Consent for Administration of Medication form on file with the nurses' office
> Parent/guardian must drop off medication to the nurses office with completed doctor's order and parent consent form (Students are not allowed to carry medication on them during school, unless it is an emergency medication and approved by the nurse - i.e.. Epi-pen, inhaler, etc).
> No more than a 30-day supply of medication may be brought to the nurses' office
> Medication must be in original container, labeled by the pharmacy - description on the bottle must match pills inside.
> If a student will need a medication on a field trip, parent must fill out Consent for Self Administration form.
> A new doctor's order must be obtained each school year.
> Please contact the nurses for any questions at: (508)823-5151 x 106 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Whenever a student sustains an illness or injury that will require modification to their ability to perform in either shop or academics at school (ex. concussion, sprained ankle, surgery, crutches, orthopedic brace, etc.), a medical re-entry form must be filled out by your healthcare provider and turned in to the nurses' office before your child returns to school.
A doctor's own note listing accommodations is also acceptable. Please remind your doctor that B-P is a vocational school, and students, depending on their shop, may be performing physical labor (ex. climbing ladders, lifting, bending, etc.). Accommodations needed for school will be made with appropriate documentation from a healthcare provider. Please call the nurses' office at (508) 823-5151 x 106 and inform the nurses if your child has sustained an illness or injury that will require school accommodations. Please note this also includes any injury caused during a school athletic or extra-curricular activity.
