Medications at School - HDSB Policy Update January 2018

The primary responsibility for the administration of prescription and/or non-prescription medications to a student rests with the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s). Therefore, wherever possible, a treatment regime should be adjusted to avoid administration of medication during school hours. Where such an adjustment is not possible, a parent/guardian should attend at school to administer medication to their own child. However, there may be circumstances, including where a medical condition requires the administration of a medication on an emergency basis, under which a student must have prescribed medication administered during school hours or during an approved school activity, and a parent/guardian cannot be available. In such instances, the Halton District School Board may accept responsibility for the administration of a prescribed medication. In this case, a parent/guardian must submit the appropriate authorization form completed in full including a physician's signature and pharmacy instructions. These forms can be found below (one for medication which the student self-administers and one for medication to be administered by school staff). 

Please note: Halton District School Board staff do administer non-prescription medications to students.
