Medication at school:
Conroe ISD policy allows the administration of medication
to students during school hours should it be necessary
for the student’s optimum health. The clinic maintains
maximum information on file for all students who receive
medication at school.  The medication is administered by
the registered nurse or other trained school employees.

Non-prescription and prescription drugs:
The school must receive a written, dated request from the
parent or legal guardian to administer any medication.  This
permission must include the name of the drug and the exact
dosage the student is to receive.  Prescription and non-
prescription drugs must be in the original container, properly
labeled, non-expired, and age appropriate.  The Surgeon
General, the Food and Drug Administration and the Center
for Disease Control have recommended that due to the
increased risk of developing “Reye’s Syndrome”, aspirin
or products containing aspirin not be given to children under
18 years.  If your physician orders aspirin for your child, please
send a copy of the physician order.

Additional guidelines for medications at school:
*All medication must be kept in the clinic during the school day.
*Over-the-counter medication dosage must not exceed the dose
  recommendation listed on the bottle.  Exception:  If your physician,
 dentist or orthodontist has directed a certain dosage to be given that
 is greater than that recommended on the bottle, a written order will
 need to be included with the written permission from the parent.
 The use of “sample” medication from the physician, dentist, or orthodontist
 must have signed written instructions from that doctor accompanied by the
 parent's written permission.
*In the interest of safety for all students, medications cannot be transported to
 or from school on the school bus.  Should your child need to have medication
 at school, please bring or make arrangements for the medication to be brought
 to the clinic.  For your convenience, many of the local pharmacies will provide
 a second labeled container for medications needed at school.
*Please note: If a medication is required “daily” or “twice a day”, please
 administer it at home.  Many “three times a day” orders may also be given
 at home unless the doctor requests specific times during the day.
*Inhalers:  Students that have asthma may experience times when symptoms
 worsen and the physician requests the student carry an inhaler to be used when
 needed.  Please provide a letter from the physician permitting the student to
 carry the inhaler.  It is strongly recommended that a spare inhaler be kept in
 the clinic in case the student cannot locate the inhaler.
