MEDICATIONS

We are happy to assist your child with medications needed at school; however, we request that the guidelines of the California Education Code and VUSD policy be followed.  These guidelines include. 

  1. The parent/guardian’s written request on the VUSD medication authorization form.

  2. A physician’s authorization detailing the amount of the medication, the method and time schedules by which the medication is to be taken.

  3. This includes ALL medications (prescription, over-the-counter, and vitamin and herbal preparations.)

  4. Physician and parent authorizations must be updated annually or more frequently if there is any change in the medication, dosage, or time schedule.

  5. The medicine is to be in the original container.

  6. A designated adult is to bring the medication to school.

  7. School personnel are not able to administer any medications without the written authorization of both the physician and parent.

  8. Please do not bring in any medication until these authorizations have been completed.

  9. Students are allowed to self-carry certain medications with parent and physician specific written approval

Note: At the end of the school year, parents are asked to pick up all medications. 

Medications left more than one week after the school year ends will be destroyed. 

Schools will be closed in July.  Please pick up medications prior to that time.
