Administering Medication During School Hours
The Mount Carmel Area School District recognizes that parents have the primary responsibility for the health of their children. Although the district strongly recommends that medication be given in the home we realize that the health of some children requires that they receive medication while in school. Parents should confer with the child’s physician to arrange medication time intervals to avoid school hours whenever possible, but if it absolutely unavoidable, a Medication During School Hours Form must be completed by the physician and parents.
