You can make plans for your child to store supplies at school. Most schools will not allow students to give themselves medicines at school; however, they will arrange for the school nurse or other trained personnel to give medicines. Teach your child to check the medicine dosage each time before taking it. Students should remind school personnel when medicines or treatments are late. Schools are busy places, and it is possible that doses or treatments could be accidentally overlooked.
Ask medical caregivers to help update your child's student health care forms every year or when medical needs change. If your child's medications change, the school must have a written order to change medications. School personnel can provide helpful feedback about your child's performance related to medication changes.
