Medication at School

We often receive requests to store students’ medication at school and to administer the proper dosage at the required time.

The Ministry of Education and the OCDSB clearly delineate the conditions under which students may obtain medication. Principals are required to store all medication in a locked container. 
(Items such as asthma inhalers are exempt). Before medication can be administered, appropriate forms must be signed by the prescribing physician and by the parent granting permission for school staff or the pupil to administer the medication. Schools are required to have a new form completed for each school year. Please ask at the office for the appropriate form.
