Medication at School Information 


Battle Ground Public Schools recognizes that in certain infrequent cases, students must take medication at school. When a health condition requires that a student be given prescription or non-prescription (over-the-counter) medication during school hours, a Medication in School Form must be completed giving authorization by the student’s parent/legal guardian and written instructions and signature of the prescribing licensed health care provider or dentist. 

  • The authorization must contain inclusive dates for each medication and any changes in the dosage or administrative instructions as they occur.
  • Only medication in containers properly labeled by the licensed health care provider, dentist, pharmacist or manufacturer and brought to school by the parent or legal guardian will be accepted for administration by the school.  
  • Only school district personnel trained and delegated by the School Nurse are authorized to administer medication at school.
