Chariho Regional School District Medication Protocol 
Below is the school policy regarding medications in school, both OTC and prescription. PLEASE DO NOT send any type of medication to school with your child. If a student brings a medication to school, it will be removed from the student's possession and placed in the locked medication cabinet until a parent is able to retrieve it.

  1. Except in the case of an emergency situation, only certified school nurse-teachers or parents are authorized to dispense medication to students within the school building. 
  2. In no instance can a parent or legal guardian delegate to another person - neighbor, relative, or a friend - the authority to come into the school to administer medication. 
  3. No student is allowed to transport medication to and from school. This includes prescription and non-prescription medicines such as; cough syrup, cough drops, aspirin, ibuprofen, etc. All medications must be transported to and from school by the parent or another adult. 
  4. Prescription and non-prescription medication will be dispensed by the school nurse-teacher only when: a) received by the school nurse-teacher in the original labeled container from the pharmacy, b) requested in writing by the attending physician, and c) authorized, in writing, by the parent or legal guardian of the student. 
  5. Inhalers, epinephrine auto-injectors (Epipens), and/or insulin may be self-carried and self-administered with written authorization from the parent, physician and certified school nurse teacher. 
  6. Regarding field trips: Epipens, inhalers, and insulin may be carried by the teacher or designated adult unless written authorization from a physician and parent states otherwise. A teacher or designated adult will carry other prescription medications after being dispensed by a school nurse-teacher into a properly labeled container. When a medication is due, the student will self-administer these medications with adult supervision. If the student is unable to self-administer the medication, the teacher or designated adult may administer. 
  7. In an emergency life-threatening situation, all school personnel are authorized to administer medication.
