Medication at school

MedicineHackberry Hill does not supply any medications for students.
    
Elementary school students are not allowed to carry any medications or keep medication in their backpack at any time. However, Jeffco Schools does allow students with severe medical issues to possess and self-administer medications in accordance with the Colorado School Children's Asthma and Anaphylaxis Health Management Act. ONLY students who meet the criteria defined in the Code of Conduct may carry their own medication. These situations are handled by the area nurse in conjunction with the health aide, parent and student. Otherwise medications must stay in the school health room.

ALL MEDICATIONS (prescription and over the counter)

  • Will be administered to students at school only upon specific request of the student's parent or guardian AND a written request from a health care provider.
  • Medications must be provided in the original container, and will be administered only in accordance with directions on the label.
  • The prescription label must state the student's name, type of medication, how often it is given, the dose amount, and the name of the prescribing physician.
  • Medication must be accompanied by a Jeffco Medication Agreement Form. (see clinic documents tab on left)
  • Medication must be brought in by an adult and will not be released to students to take home. A parent, guardian or other designated adult will need to retrieve medication from the clinic.
  • Medication provided must be appropriate for the student's age.
  • COUGH DROPS ARE MEDICATION. 

At the end of each school year, an adult family member must pick up any medications that was sent to school. If medications are not claimed by the last day of school, the medicines will be destroyed.
