The Renaissance Health Assistant works with our District Nurse to care for our students within the parameters set by the Douglas County School District.  It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to inform the school of any new health conditions (including asthma, allergies, etc) and to communicate to us any changes to an existing diagnosis.

STUDENT MEDICATIONS AT SCHOOL

  • A new Provider Medication Authorization Form is required for every school year for each medication administered at school.

  • Douglas County School District employees may not administer homeopathic or herbal preparations.

  • Prescription medication must be in the original pharmacy labeled container. The label must have the student’s name, medication, dosage, number and/or time(s) of dosages per day and name of the prescribing health care provider. 

  • Over the counter medication must be in its original packaging. 

  • All medications will be reviewed by our district nurse as to whether the medication is in accordance with district policy. Parents will be notified of any issues as soon as possible.

  • Any change in medication dosage or schedule will require a new Provider Medication Authorization Form to be completed and signed by a physician and parent.
