Medication Administration:

Medication Policy – ALL medications (prescription, over-the-counter, long-term or short-term, or asthma inhaler) require a PSD Authorization and Release to Administer Medication Form signed by both the prescribing practitioner and the parent/guardian. This includes Tylenol, cough drops, etc. The form must be signed by both the parent and prescribing practitioner each year. Medication administration forms are available in the health office and on PSD’s Health Services webpage (click HERE). All medications must be in the original bottle/container/package, whether prescription or over-the-counter. No medications will be accepted in envelopes, plastic bags, etc. All medications will be kept in a locked cabinet in the health office. Students may go down to the health office when medication is needed. Students may carry asthma inhalers and Epi-Pens once a PSD Carry and Self-Administer Prescribed Medicine–Asthma-Allergy Form is completed and on file at the school.

 

PSD Student Health and Wellness Centers

The two centers will see any student enrolled for care. Enrollment forms and information are available on the Health and Wellness Center website, by calling 970-488-4950, or emailing hwcenter@everychildpediatrics.org
