WCPS Medication Information
WCPS encourages medications to be given outside of school hours when possible. If your child MUST have medication of any type given during school hours you may come to the school and give the medication to your child at the appropriate time.
If you choose to have designated school personnel (teacher, teacher assistant, secretary) administer your child's medication, you MUST follow these guidelines:
Only medications prescribed by a licensed health care provider will be administered by school personnel. This law does not allow anything to be given without physician authorization, including cough drops, Tylenol, etc.
THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY
