Berkshire Schools Medication Policy Update
By Kathy Pinkava, RN, LSN, Berkshire School Nurse
The Berkshire Schools Medication Policy has been updated to align with current Board of Education policy and the policies of our neighboring school districts. There is now only one Medication Administration Request Form for all types of medications (both prescription and over
the counter) and the form must be completed and signed by the student’s physician as well as the parent. It is important that students are evaluated by their physician for their health problems and that the school know that the requested medication and dosing is safe and appropriate for the student at school. The policy does extend to athletics and school trips.
