Klein ISD Medication Policy

If your student needs routine medicines at school, please complete the form below and have an adult bring the medication to the clinic. The medication must have a current prescription label and the medicine can not be expired.

Over the counter medicine must also be brought to the clinic
by an adult. It must have age appropriate directions on the label. OTC medicines may be kept in the clinic for a period of 2 weeks. If needed for longer duration, it must be accompanied by a physicians order. A physician can sign the medication authorization form below.

Klein school personnel are not permitted to give medication of any kind, including analgesics, similar preparations, or any other drugs, unless the parent requests in writing that there is a need for such medication and the parent provides the medication. If the circumstances are questionable, the school employee reserves the right to deny the parent's request. Students will be scheduled to come to the clinic for medicines. Due to the large number of medicine administrations each day, a request to administer medication may result in lost instructional time each day.

When administering prescription medicines, the school district would prefer to have a written statement from a physician or dentist licensed to practice in the United States. Information, however, placed on a prescription label, if it is precise and clear to the school nurse, may be substituted for the above-noted statement. The nurse may request a doctor's statement for certain prescription medications. The prescription must be filled by a pharmacist licensed to practice in the United States. If prescription medicine is required, it must be in its original container, kept in locked storage in the office of the school nurse, or principal's designee, and administered by the school nurse or a school employee. The school may accept a sufficient quantity of medicine for one month. Upon receipt, the medicine will be inventoried and discrepancies reported to parents. Only prescription medication needed for the student to remain in school will be administered.
Non-prescription medications will only be administered for a period of two weeks with written parental permission. A physician's note will be required for any non-prescription medication needed for longer than two weeks.

No vitamins, health food, or herbal preparations will be given.
Medication with limited duration, i.e. antibiotics, will be administered for the time prescribed on the label, and any leftover medicine not picked up by the parent will be destroyed.
All prescription medication must be brought to and picked up at the clinic by a parent or guardian. Medication will not be given to students to transport home.
Medications must be picked up by a parent or guardian by the last day of school or they will be destroyed by 4 pm that day.
