-All medication must be kept in a locked cabinet in the school clinic. No student should carry or self-dispense medication while at school.
-All medications dispensed at school must be accompanied by a signed “Parent/Physician Request For Administration of Medication” form. (yes, this includes even cough drops, skin creams, etc!) These forms can be found on the RISD website by going to the “Parents” main page, and clicking on the “Health Services” link or you can request one from the school nurse.
-All non-prescription medications must be in the original container. The container provides important dosage information. No medications brought to school in baggies will be administered!
