In compliance with changes in the Kansas Nurse Practice Act (K.A.R. 60-15-104), Basehor-Linwood School District has adopted the following medication policy:

ALL medications must be sent in the original container.

ALL medications must be accompanied by a note from the parent/guardian containing the following information:

  1. Date

  2. Name of student

  3. Name of medication

  4. Dosage (amount, time of day, and number of days med is to be taken)

  5. Reason for medication (i.e. strep throat, ear infection)

  6. Any special instructions or information that might be helpful

  7. Signature of parent/ guardian

Prescription Drugs

In addition to the above; if your child takes a prescribed medication daily, it must be accompanied by a written physician’s order. Any changes in dosage and/ or time must be accompanied by a note from a parent/ guardian, and a newly labeled pharmacy container and a new written physician’s order. 

For short-term prescriptions (i.e: antibiotics), the original pharmacy container and a parent’s note are sufficient.

***Please note: We discourage the transportation of medications back and forth from home to school by students.  At your request, the pharmacy will provide a second labeled container so that a sufficient quantity of the medication can be left at school. 

Nonprescription Medication

Nonprescription medications will not be supplied to students, by the early learning center, elementary or intermediate schools. Standard stock medications will be available to middle and high school students (if permitted by parents) as well as staff working at all schools.  

Any nonprescription medication that a parent wishes a student to take must adhere to the above policy and any changes in dosage, time or reason must be accompanied by a note from a parent/ guardian. Please note that throat lozenges/ cough drops are considered medication and are subject to the above policies. This policy was developed with the safety of students in mind. Please feel free to contact the school nurses if there are questions concerning this policy or have concerns regarding any student health-related issue.
