Administering Medication

images-2.jpgIt is the responsibility of the parent/guardian for the administration of medication of any kind to students of the Durham District School Board.
The Durham District School Board recognizes that there are special cases where a student must have prescriptive medication during regular school hours. School staff cannot administer medication to a student unless there is a current signed consent form on file (see below). All forms expire on June 30 of each school year and must be completed and signed by the student's prescribing doctor.

At no time, should a student have any medication in his/her possession (with the exception of Epipen belts and fanny packs) as this also poses a risk to other students. All medication must be transported by the child's parent/guardian to the school office and accompanied by the required forms listed below. 

Administration of Oral Medication (e.g. inhaler, Benadryl)

Administration of Medication by Injection (e.g. Epipen)

If your child has a life-threatening allergy or illness, you are encouraged to obtain a free MedicAlert bracelet through the No Child Without program.
