Medication Forms

Parents must provide a medication order signed by their healthcare provider if their student has a condition that will require the administration of any medication (prescription or non-prescription, including Tylenol).

Parents will provide medication in original packaged or prescription container that has not expired along with the appropriately signed medication form (below). Once received, a nurse may delegate administration of either a prescription or over-the-counter medication, based on the health care provider's order.


Asthma Care Plan

Students diagnosed with asthma and require an inhaler or medication at school will need to have their health care provider and parents complete the Colorado Asthma Care Plan and return it to the school clinic aide along with the medication. Parents of student with asthma or health concerns are also encouraged to contact their District RN to follow up regarding care and support at school.


Students with Food Allergies

The Jefferson County Board of Education recognizes that many students are being diagnosed with potentially life-threatening food allergies. To address this issue and meet state law requirements concerning the management of food allergies and anaphylaxis among students, the board has established Policy JLCDA, which specifies details regarding a health care plan, reasonable accommodations, access to emergency medications and staff training. Parents, the school administrator, and the District RN will develop a health plan using the Colorado Allergy and Anaphylaxis Care Form.
