- New medication authorization forms for both prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications, including cough drops and over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen, must be signed every year by a health care provider and parent/guardian on the Maryland Medication Authorization Form.
- Each medication both prescription and over-the-counter must have a separate authorization form.
- If your child has allergies or asthma, the forms for allergy or asthma action plans must be completed as well.
- Medication must remain in the properly labeled pharmacy or original OTC container.
- The parent/guardian is responsible for having the medication delivered directly to the school in a properly labeled original container by an adult with the necessary completed and signed forms.
- All medications will be received by and kept in CMT's office.
- If your child has a respiratory condition that requires a rescue inhaler, allergies that require an epinephrine auto-injector, or diabetes and requires insulin, glucagon, and related diabetes supplies, there must be a provider written permission which includes an attestation that the student has demonstrated the ability to self-administer and written parent/guardian consent. For other conditions, your child may be able to self-carry and self-administer but will need documented signed permission from both you and your provider.
Contact Mrs. Mary Beth O'Boyle, Infection Control Coordinator & CMT, with questions.
