Policy No. 3416

Medication at School

Under normal circumstances prescribed oral medication and oral over-the-counter medication should be dispensed before and/or after school hours under supervision of the parent or guardian.

If a student must receive prescribed or over-the counter oral or topical medication, eye drops, ear drops or nasal spray (“medications”) from an authorized staff member, the parent must submit a written authorization accompanied by a written request from a licensed health professional prescribing within the scope of his or her prescriptive authority. If the medication will be administered for more than fifteen consecutive days, the health professional must also provide written, current and unexpired instructions for the administration of the medication.

The superintendent will establish procedures for:

  1. Delegating, training and supervision of staff members in the administration of prescribed or non-prescribed oral medication to students by a physician or registered nurse;
  2. Designating staff members who may administer prescribed or non-prescribed oral medication to students;
  3. Obtaining signed and dated parental and health professional request for the dispensing of prescribed or non-prescribed oral medications, including instructions from health professional if the medication is to be given for more than fifteen days;
  4. Storing prescribed or non-prescribed medication in a locked or limited access facility;

  6. Permitting, under limited circumstances, students to carry and self-administer medications necessary to their attendance at school.
  7. Permitting possession and self-administration of over-the-counter topical sunscreen products.  See Sunscreen Section below). RCW 28A.210.278

Nasal spray, suppositories and non-emergency injections may not be administered by school staff other than the registered nurses and licensed practical nurses. No medication will be administered by injection by school staff except when a student is susceptible to a predetermined, life-endangering situation (see Policy 3420, Anaphylaxis Prevention and Response). In such an instance, the parent will submit a written and signed permission statement. Such an authorization will be supported by signed and dated written orders accompanied by supporting directions from the licensed health professional. A staff member will be trained prior to injecting a medication.

If the district decides to discontinue administering a student’s medication, the superintendent or designee must provide notice to the student’s parent or guardian orally and in writing prior to the discontinuance. There must be a valid reason for the discontinuance that does not compromise the health of the student or violate legal protections for the disabled.

Administration of legend (prescribed) drugs or controlled substances by nasal spray:

If a school nurse is on the premises, he/she may administer a nasal spray containing a prescribed drug or controlled substance to a student. If a school nurse is not on school premises, a nasal spray containing a legend (prescribed) drug or controlled substance may be administered by:

1)   a trained school employee, provided that person has received appropriate RN delegation and volunteered for the training pursuant to RCW 28A.210.260; or

2)   a parent-designated adult.

A parent designated adult is a volunteer, who may be a school district employee, who receives additional training from a healthcare professional or expert in epileptic seizure care selected by the parents who provides care for the student consistent with the student’s individual health plan on file with the school.

Required Notification of EMS

After every administration of any legend (prescribed) drug or controlled substance by nasal spray to a student, Emergency Medical Services (911) will be summoned as soon as practicable.

  1. The product is regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration as an over-the-counter sunscreen product; and
  2. If possessed by a student, the product is provided to the student by a parent/guardian.

Medical Marijuana

Washington State law (RCW 69.51A.060) permits the use of medical marijuana, however, federal law (Title lV- Part A-Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities and the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 811) prohibits the possession and use of marijuana on the premises of recipients of federal funds including educational institutions. Therefore, there will be no accommodation of any marijuana use on any school grounds, school bus, or at any other school related activities.

Policy No. 3413

                                                                                                                       

Student Immunization And Life Threatening Health Conditions

Immunizations

In order to safeguard the school community from the spread of certain communicable diseases and in recognition that prevention is a means of combating the spread of disease, the board requires a student to present evidence of his/her having been immunized against the following diseases as recommended by the State Board of Health: diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, poliomyelitis, measles, rubella, mumps, hepatitis B, varicella (chickenpox) for children under thirteen years of age and haemophilus influenza type B disease. A student satisfies the measles requirement upon a physician's verification that the student has had measles (rubeola).

Immediately upon enrollment in the district a certificate of immunization status, distributed by the Washington Department of Health, shall be completed by the student's parent. The certificate shall be made a part of the student's permanent record.

If a student has not received any or all of the required immunizations, he/she shall submit evidence of the initiation of an immunization schedule and be placed in a “conditional admittance” category. He/she may remain in school for one school year thirty  (30) calendar days (WAC 246-105-020) provided that there is documentation that the immunization schedule is being maintained. Failure to maintain the schedule or submit documentation shall be sufficient cause to exclude the student from school.

Exemptions from one or more vaccines shall be granted for medical reason upon certification by a physician that there is a medical reason for not administering the vaccine. Exemptions for personal or religious reasons shall be granted upon request of the parent. The permanent file of students with exemptions shall be marked for easy identification should the department of health order that exempted students be excluded from school temporarily during an epidemic.

If proof of immunization or a certificate of exemption is not received upon the student's enrollment in school, the principal shall provide written notice to the parents or guardians informing them of:

  1. The immunization requirements;
  2. The denial of further attendance by the student;
  3. The procedural due process rights; and
  4. The immunization services that are available.

Following proper notification, the school shall exclude the student for noncompliance with the immunization laws pursuant to the appeal process procedures for student expulsions. Parents shall have a right to a hearing provided they notify the school within 3 days after receiving the exclusion order from the school principal. If the parent requests a hearing, the parent or guardian and school principal shall be notified in writing of the time and place for the hearing and shall present the case to a hearing officer appointed by the superintendent.

Meningococcal Immunizations Information Distribution 

The district will provide parents and guardians of students in sixth grade and above with information about meningococcal disease at the beginning of every school year. The information will address the characteristics of the disease; where to find additional information about the disease; vaccinations for children; and current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding receiving the vaccine.

Human Papillomavirus Disease Information

At the beginning of every school year, from sixth through twelfth grade, the district will provide parents and guardians with information, provided by the state Department of Health about human papillomavirus disease and its vaccine.

The information will include the causes and symptoms of human papillomavirus, how the disease is spread, the places where parents and guardians may obtain additional information and vaccinations for their children and current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control Prevention regarding the vaccine.

Life-Threatening Health Conditions

Prior to attendance at school, each child with a life-threatening health condition will present a medication or treatment order addressing the condition. A life threatening health condition means a condition that will put the child in danger of death during the school day if a medication or treatment order providing authority to a registered nurse and nursing plan are not in place. Following submission of the medication or treatment order, a nursing plan will be developed.

Students who have a life-threatening health condition and no medication or treatment order presented to the school will be excluded from school, to the extent that the district can do so consistent with federal requirements for students with disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and according to the following due process requirements:

  1. Written notice to the parents, guardians or persons in loco parentis delivered to the parents in person or by certified mail;
  2. Notice of the applicable laws, including a copy of the laws and rules;
  3. The order that the student will be excluded from school immediately and until a medication or treatment order is presented;
  4. Describe the rights of the parents and student to a hearing, the hearing process and explain that the exclusion continues until the medication or treatment plan is presented or the hearing officer determines that the student should no longer be excluded from school;
  5. If the parents request a hearing, the district will schedule one within three school days of receiving the request, unless more time is requested by the parents; and
  6. The hearing process will be consistent with the procedures established for disciplinary cases pursuant to Chapter 392-400 WAC.
