An Authorization for Medication Administration form (available on the Diegueno website) must be filled out and signed by both the parent/guardian and the physician in order for the health technician to administer any medications. Authorization forms must be signed and dated by your students Doctor AFTER August 1st of the school year. Authorizations are valid for one school year only. This includes all over the counter medicine as well as prescription medications. Both the medications and the appropriate forms must be brought to the health office and logged in by a parent with the Health Tech (NOT SENT IN WITH THE STUDENT) before any will be dispensed.
Please note that if your child wears braces or contact lenses, we do not have "wax" or "saline solution" available, so they should be prepared to carry those items with them. Parents or guardians are permitted to come to the school and dispense medicine to their children in the health office as needed if the required forms are not on file.
