Per Robbinsdale Area Schools Medication Policy, we do not send medication home with students during the school year, including the last day of school. On the last day of school, students are only allowed to self-carry prescription asthma inhalers and non-syringe injectors of epinephrine home from school.
Parents/guardians are responsible for picking up all other student medication directly from the health
office. Medication not picked up by the last day of school will be discarded as Pharmaceutical Waste
per district policy.
If your student is attending summer school or Adventure Club, you are responsible for coordinating with that program and providing the medication for the summer. The current school year medication
authorization from your licensed health care provider will be valid for summer programs.
New medication authorization forms are required for each new school year.
If your child has asthma or a severe allergy, a current Action Plan is preferred as an order. You are not
required to use our forms for the medication order. Many clinics use their own forms. We do however
need your signature and consent to dispense medications each new school year. Make your appointments early as doctor’s offices get very busy over the summer.
You can access health forms and medication authorization forms here.
