Licking Heights Local Schools require physician and parent authorization to administer any prescription and over the counter medication to a student. Only those medications necessary to be given during the school day will be administered. Examples of over the counter medications include acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
We wish to emphasize that it is more desirable for medication to be administered at home. However, any student who is required to take medication during the regular school day must comply with school regulations. A form must be obtained from the clinic and competed by the physician and the parent or guardian.
