Medication Policies

Dear Parents,


            This webpage contains the Beaufort County School District’s medication policy packet. Please refer to this policy for future reference, especially if your child will be taking prescribed and/or over-the-counter medications at school.   Page 4 of this packet contains a list of over-the-counter medications available at school.


            This packet also contains a health card to be completed by you so that we can obtain necessary emergency information about your child. There is a blank which can be checked so that your child has permission for the school health nurse to administer Tylenol (Acetaminophen), if necessary. Please sign, date, and return the health card to school immediately. This information will be confidential and placed in your child’s school health folder.


            The school health nurses welcome your questions and concerns. If we can assist you in any way, please call. We ask that you assist us in treating home injuries at home. We also ask that meds to be given twice daily and three times daily be given at home. We all know that “healthy children learn better.”
