    Medication Administration at School or on Field Trips

    Any student who is required to take prescribed medication during the school day may be assisted by a school nurse or designated school personnel if the school receives a completed “Medication Authorization Form” signed by a California licensed health care provider and the student’s parent or guardian (EC 49423).

    Upon written parent’s consent and school nurse approval, a student may be allowed to carry and self-administer prescription auto-injectable epinephrine, prescription inhaled asthma medication, or medications and supplies prescribed for the management of diabetes. Students may be allowed to carry and self-administer these prescribed medications if the school receives a completed “Medication Authorization Form” and the “Student/Parent Consent to Carry and Self-Administer Medication” form and after approval by the school nurse.

    Medication forms can be obtained from the school health office or printed from the links below.

    No medication, including herbal remedies or other over-the-counter drugs, will be stored or dispensed at school without written authorization from the physician and parent. All medication permits must be renewed at the beginning of the school year before school employees may assist with medication administration. Medication must be supplied by the parent in the original prescription clearly labeled with student’s name, medication, dosage and directions, or original over-the-counter container.

    Your child's school will keep an accurate written record documenting that the medication was administered in the prescribed amount at the prescribed time.

    Medication Authorization Forms

    If your student has Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, or a specialized health care procedure (i.e. Catheterization, Gastrostomy Tubes, etc.), please contact Health Services directly at health@pausd.org or 650-833-4240 for information on necessary forms and protocols.
