Medication Authorization

 
The GUSD complies with and is governed by state law regarding medication on campus. Education Code 49423 states that any student who is required to take medication during the school day may be assisted by the school nurse or other designated school personnel if:
  • The school receives a medication authorization from the student’s physician detailing the method, amount and time schedules by which the medication is to be taken.
  • The student is taking medication, including medications prescribed by the physician and over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol, Motrin, or cough syrup. A medication authorization form is required before designated school staff can assist with administering medications.
  • All authorized medications must be in their original container with their pharmacy label attached. Please bring all medications to the health office. Do not send to school with your child.
