Medication Administration

The following summarizes The Bear Creek School’s medication administration policy. The full policy may be found in the Family Handbook (log in on MyBC/Parents).

  • All medication (prescription or over-the-counter) must be stored in the Health Room. The only exceptions are: epinephrine, asthma inhalers, and insulin.
  • Any student who requires a nurse or staff member to administer medication, whether prescription or over-the-counter not included in the parent-authorized list of school-provided medications, must have a health care provider signed Waiver and Authorization to Administer Medication form on file.
  • Any Middle School or Upper School student who wishes to self-administer prescription medication must have a health care provider signed Waiver and Authorization to Administer Medication form on file and must store medication in the Health Room.
  • Any Middle School or Upper School student who wishes to self-administer over-the-counter medication must have a Waiver and Authorization to Administer Medication form (parent only section) on file and must store medication in the Health Room.
  • Generally, Lower School and Early Middle School students may not self-administer medication (exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis).
