Self Administration Form for Students on Overnight & Out of State Trips

Dear Parent/Guardian: 

District policy allows students to self-administer medications with school nurse and parent/guardian approval. In order for your child to carry and administer his/her/their own inhaler and/or epinephrine auto injector and/or insulin and/or other medication as prescribed by a licensed physician, you must complete part A of this form. Part B will be completed in the health office with your child. You may be present during the completion of part B (back) of this form if you so desire. Your child must be able to answer the questions in Part B or he/she/they will not be permitted to carry or administer his/her/their own medication. This is for the safety of your child and others. This form must be completed IN ADDITION to the parent and prescriber’s normal authorization form for administration of medication in school.

I request that my child ________________________ be permitted to carry on his/her/their personal: 

● Inhaler _________

My child has been instructed in and understands the purpose, appropriate method, frequency and use of his/her/their medication. My child understands that he/she/they is/are responsible and accountable for carrying and using his/her/their medication. My child understands that if he/she/they self administers this medication while on an Overnight or Out of State Field Trip that he/she/they will inform the school nurse or closest adult immediately after administration. It is understood that if there is irresponsible behavior or safety risk, the privilege of carrying his/her/their medication will be rescinded. I will support my child in following the agreement in Part B.
