Medication Policy Guidelines

  • Medication needed to be administered to a student during school hours must be provided by a student’s parent/guardian. All medications must be kept in the nurse’s office and administered by the nurse or another authorized district employee. Medications must remain in their original container. SMCISD Health Services cannot accept medication that is not in the proper container and/or labeled with the correct name. Parents/guardians must complete a Parent's Request For Administering Medication At School Form prior to medication administration. 

    Students are not allowed to carry any medication in their backpacks and self-administer, including Tylenol, ibuprofen, cold medicine, allergy medicine, inhalers or EpiPens without proper paperwork. Contact your campus nurse for any questions. 

    SMCISD Health Services will not administer herbal substances, anabolic steroids, or dietary supplements to any student.

    SMCISD will dispose of any unused or expired medication not picked up by the parent/guardian at the end of the school year.
