Changes to Medication Policy
This is the image for the news article titled Changes to Medication PolicyUnder new guidelines set by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the Carlynton School Board adopted a new medication policy that will change the way all medications are administered to students. The changes effect both prescription and over-the-counter drugs.

As of November 7, 2017, all medications for students MUST be brought to the child's school and picked up by a parent, guardian, or responsible adult, unless a licensed doctor writes an order allowing the child to carry the medication on their person (such as an inhaler).

No prescription or over-the-counter medication will be given to a student without a doctor's order AND the parent/guardian signature. 

Parents are to use THIS FORM for authorization. It MUST be completed and signed by the parent/guardian and a Licensed Prescriber and is necessary for either/or prescribed medication or over-the-counter medication, such as Tylenol, Benadryl or Sudafed.  This authorization form can also be found under the PARENT RESOURCES tab of the district website.
