Prescription Medications: Prescription drug medications require written permission for administration in the school setting from both a healthcare provider and a parent/guardian. Please complete and return the Permission to Give Prescription/Homeopathic Medication at School form below. Most pharmacies are happy to provide an extra labeled container so that a prescription can be divided and placed in a properly labeled container for school use. If the dose or the directions change, a new form/container must be submitted. Medication shall be in the original, properly labeled container with the current date printed on the container, and all other parameters required for medication administration (student name, prescribing physician’s name, drug name, dose, route, time and/or frequency).

Students with Allergies and Asthma: Albuterol and Epinephrine should be kept in the clinic unless written permission for a student to carry these prescription drugs has been agreed to by the physician, parent, and school nurse. This written agreement form is located in the school clinic and on the Health Services Web page. It requires, in part, that the student has demonstrated the necessary maturity to keep it on their person. In general, students less than ten years of age should not be burdened with this responsibility. If your child has been diagnosed with asthma, the Colorado State Asthma Care Plan should be completed by the healthcare provider and parent/guardian. For allergies, the Allergy and Anaphylaxis Action Plan should be completed by both the healthcare provider and a parent/guardian.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
