Medication Policy and Procedures

The revised medication policy, "Regulations Governing the Administration of Prescription and Over the Counter Medications in the Beverly Public Schools," was approved by the school committee on May 5, 2010. All prescription medications given by the nurses require yearly signed consent forms from the prescribing physician and parent. Certain over the counter medications are described by the "Medication Protocols for the Beverly Public School Nurses." If you desire to have your child receive an over the counter medication that is not listed in the medication protocols, this medication will require a signed physician's consent along with signed medication parental consent. All of the policies, protocols, and consent forms are available for downloading from this webpage
