  1. Written order from student's doctor.
  2. Written request from parent to administer medicine on form supplied by school.
  3. Parent must deliver medicine directly to the school nurse.
  4. School nurse will keep medicine in a locked drawer or file. Unused medication will be destroyed at the conclusion of the treatment if parent does not pick it up.
  5. Parent must report any change of time or amount of dosage.
  6. Medication must be in original prescription bottle with druggist label and directions affixed to the bottle.
