MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL

For the protection and care of students, the Red Wing School District follows State recommendations concerning the dispensing of medications at school.

Below are the district guidelines:
  • Medication must be brought to the nurse's office in its original container with the appropriate label on it. Over the counter medications (Tylenol, Advil, Ibuprofen, etc.) must be in the original container labeled for that medication.
  • A doctor's authorization form is necessary for prescription medication. This doctor's authorization form must be renewed each school year.
  • The school will dispose of any left over medication that remains unclaimed at the end of the school year.
  • AT NO TIME SHOULD A CHILD BRING AND/OR TAKE ANY MEDICATION WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION OF SCHOOL AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL.
