Our clinic staff will administer minor first aid, prescription drugs, and long-term medication. Over-the-counter medication will be administered only when a parent request is furnished in writing for a specific reason and day. When parents bring medication to school, detailed instructions should be provided on the school form along with the medication in the original container. Should your child require long-term medication, several weeks to indefinite in length, our clinic staff will dispense medication only after your doctor has written specific instructions that include the exact dosage to be given. We also require documentation to administer medication for specific known medical problems (e.g. severe allergies).
List of Gwinnett County Medical Forms
Forms are available by request from the school clinic.
No prescription or over-the-counter medications (Tylenol, aspirin, Pepto Bismol, etc.) should be sent to school with students. Parents must hand deliver medications to the clinic. According to school bus rules, students are not permitted to have tobacco, alcohol, or any controlled substances (Ritalin, Adderall, etc.) on the bus. The safety of your child as well as other children is the primary consideration behind this rule.
The clinic depends on your donations for supplies for the clinic, such as band-aids, zip-lock sandwich bags, and tissues. Also, the clinic is always in need of gently used or new boy's and girl's pants in sizes 6 to 14. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
