My child takes medication. What is the system for administering medication at school?
Parents of children who are on medication must provide on a monthly basis, a month's supply of medication for their child in advance.
Parents of children who are on medication must provide on a monthly basis, a month's supply of medication for their child in advance. Kentwood will provide parents with daily plastic bags into which parents must put the daily pills in the correct dosage. On the bag should be written the students name, the time to be administered, the date to be administered, and the type of medication. In addition parents should provide Kentwood with a supply of extra medications should we run out or should your child forget to take the medication in the morning. It is very important that monthly supplies of medication are brought to school (by the parent or an authorized adult) at least three days before the start of each new month. If this is not done parents will be charged a processing fee. It is also very important that we are informed of any change in medication, dosage, time of administration, or if your child is taken off medication for any reason..
