Licking Heights Local Schools requires that prescription medications must have physician and parent authorization to have the medications administered at school. Over the counter medications only need parent authorization to have the medication administered at school. 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.
Reminder: Students who must take prescribed medication during the school day must comply with Policy 5330: Use of Medication.
Medication must be picked up prior to the last day of school. Any medication left in the building will be disposed of. School personnel will not be responsible for medication while school is not in session.
