Medications at School

Medication is defined to mean all drugs, whether prescription or “over-the-counter”.  It is the policy of the Bainbridge Island School District not to give medicine to students at school, except at the request of the parent and a licensed practitioner with prescriptive authority.  If it is necessary to take medication during the school day, these procedures are to be followed:

  • Parents will sign the Medication at School form.
  • Parents will have the form completed by their healthcare provider.
  • Parents will bring in the completed form and the medication in the original container to the office.  Please bring only the required number of doses to the school and keep the remainder of medication at home.
  • Students are not allowed to transport the medication (unless the medication is an inhaler).

BISD School Board Policy #3416 and Procedure #P3416 outline the district's policy regarding Medication at School.
