Field Trip Medications

  • Please read carefully the following information concerning the nurse’s office. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact me. As the school nurse, I hope to provide our students with a healthy environment so that our students can learn.
    If a student needs medication while on a field trip, the medication must be furnished by the parent and given to the teacher prior to departure for the field trip. A signed field trip medication form must accompany the medication. The medication must be provided in the original container with only the number of doses needed for the field trip. Medications such as tablets and capsules cannot come from the school nurse’s supply. The school nurse cannot legally direct anyone other than another nurse to give medications.
