Students are prohibited from carrying or self-administering any medication whether it is prescribed or over the counter while participating on a school sponsored trip as per the Board of Education policy. All such medication must be carried and administered by a Board approved licensed nurse. However, New Jersey law provides that students are permitted to self-administer medication only “for asthma or other potentially life-threatening illnesses or a life-threatening allergic reaction” N.J.S.A. 18A:40-12.5 (For example, epi-pens or inhalers.) The parent/guardian of the student must provide the school nurse with a written authorization from the student’s physician, which states that the student may self-administer these medications. This form must also be signed by the parent/guardian. Under these limited conditions, a student may self-administer only those specified medications. Please check the applicable space. If necessary, a school nurse will contact you regarding the specific
details surrounding your child.
________My student does not need any medication administered while on the trip. ________I will provide the required documentation to the school nurse in order to have my student self-administer prescribed medication. (Examples: epi-pens, or asthma inhalers only.) ________I will need the medication(s) listed below administered to my student by an approved licensed
nurse while on the trip. I understand that both my student’s physician and I must complete the
enclosed medication form.
