Willamette Health Room
Cough medicine reminder
Parents, please be aware that our school medication policy includes such things as cough drops and cough/cold medicines.
Over the counter (OTC) medications also require a completed medication form and a parent signature with specific dispensing instructions. OTC medication must follow the manufacturer instructions and be in manufacturer packaging.
So, if your child needs a cough drop or cough medicine at school the parent/guardian needs to bring in the OTC medication in the original packaging along with filling out the Medication Authorization form. The student should not bring in a handful of cough drops to give to the health room assistant or keep in their backpack/pocket.

The medication law is designed to protect students and the school from any harm. In order to administer medication to students, the following requirements must be followed.
- A form must be filled out: Forms are available in the school office and health room.
- Parents or responsible person older than 18 must transport the medication to and from school.
Students may not transport the medication.
- Prescription medications require a parent/guardian signature. An accurate label with specific dispensing instructions or a physician signature on the form with dispensing instructions is required.
- Any time the dosage changes, a new form is required, as well as a new bottle with an accurate label or a new prescription with a physician signature.
- Over the counter (OTC) medications also require a completed form and a parent signature with specific dispensing instructions. OTC medication must follow the manufacturer instructions. No physician signature is required for OTC medications.
- If medication will be required while your student is on a field trip, a separate bottle that is accurately labeled may be provided to the school. Please ask your pharmacist for an extra, labeled bottle.
- In some cases, students who are developmentally and/or behaviorally able, will be allowed to self-administer prescription and non-prescription medications and inhalers. Certain medications, such as stimulants, narcotics and barbiturates are not allowed to be self-medicated. A separate form is needed in these situations.
Instructions for any medication dispensed at school must include:
Name of the medication (i.e. Tylenol)
Dosage (i.e. 325mg., two tablets)
Frequency (i.e. every four hours)
Reason for medication (i.e. headache)
We will NOT be able to dispense medications to students unless the above instruction are followed. Please contact the health assistant in your child’s school if you have questions.
