If a child requires oral medication at school, either over-the-counter or prescription medication, a medication administration form must be filled out and signed by both the parent/guardian and health care provider/dentist. For the safety of everyone, all medication must be delivered to school by an adult and needs to be in its original container. This is especially important information to remember if your child should go on an overnight field trip or for other school activities.
This is in compliance with our School Board Policy 3416, 3416P. Please fill out the Whatcom County Schools Authorization for Medications at School Form . This form is universal throughout Whatcom County, please note that over-the-counter medications do require a health provider/dentist signature per Mount Baker School Board Policy.
If your student has emergency medication needed at school for epinepherine or diastat, please use the forms below.
