Medication Distribution
The Lakeview Board of Education encourages that, to the extent possible, the parents administer medication to students outside of school hours. However, when this is not possible, the Lakeview Board of Education authorizes its Lakeview Local School employees to administer the prescribed medication in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code 3313.713 and over-the-counter medication as requested by the parent. The Board of Education will also allow students to carry and use emergency medication as prescribed by a physician for a particular health condition.

Before any medication may be administered to a student during school hours, the Board shall require completion of the appropriate Authorization Form (Parental Request for the Administration of Medication, Parental Request for Administration of Over-the-Counter Medication, or Authorization for Asthma Medication).

ALL Physician - Prescribed Medication

All medication must be delivered to the school by the parent or guardian in its original container, labeled with: the date if a prescription, the name of the student, the name of the medication, the exact dosage to be given, the route of administration, the frequency and time it is to be given/taken, the physician name, any special handling/storage instructions, possible side effects, and the pharmacy name and telephone number. The information on the container label must match the information on the Medication Authorization form exactly.

The parent shall submit a completed revised Medication Authorization form, signed by the physician, in the event any of the original information provided changes. All requests shall be honored until the termination date on the form or until the end of the school year. A new form must be submitted at the beginning of each school year.

Parents are responsible for maintaining adequate amounts of the child’s medication and replacing it prior to its expiration date. Any unused medication unclaimed by the parent within three school days of its discontinuation will be destroyed by the Board authorized employee at that time.

The parent is responsible to instruct the student to report to the designated area to take the medication at the appropriate time. It is the student’s responsibility to report to the designated area at the time the medication is to be administrated, and to take the medication.

Physician-Prescribed Asthma medication to be processed and/or used by the student.

In addition to the aforementioned “All Physician-Prescribed Medication”, the student is required to report the need of the emergency medication to the nearest adult in supervision prior to its use, use the medication in the presence of the supervising adult, and report use of the medication to the school’s nurse or Board authorized employee after its use.

Over-the-Counter Medication

Parents may request that over the counter medication be administered to the student after completing the appropriate authorization form. Parents are responsible for delivery of the medication to the school in its original container, clearly labeled with the student’s name and grade.
