As a general policy, medicines are not administered to students at school. However, in special circumstances a Medical Information Form may be obtained by parents or guardians from the school office. Both the parent or guardian and physician prescribing the medication for the child should fill out this form. Once completed, the form should be returned to the school office and arrangements will be made to administer the indicated medication. When medication has been approved for administration at school, it must be brought to the office by the parent or guardian and will be administered according to the instructions on the medication form. The medication must be brought to school in the container and/or box received from the pharmacy. Knox County Board Policy forbids students to be in possession of any form of medication.
