In order to best provide for students' safety, we request that all students who have prescribed emergency rescue medication have these medications available for their use while in school or attending school sponsored activities, especially when participating in athletic activity. (Inhalers, Epi Pens, and Glucagon)

Per New York State law, health care provider and parent permission is needed for all prescription and over the counter (OTC) medications used at school or school-sponsored activities. Permissions are required to be renewed every school year.   Parents/guardians are responsible for having medications delivered directly to the school in a properly labeled original container by an adult, unless the student has a health care provider attestation to carry and use their medication independently (see below). 

New York State law allows students with respiratory (breathing) conditions, allergies, and/or diabetes the right to independently carry and use their inhaled respiratory rescue medications (epinephrine auto-injectors), and insulin, glucagon, and related diabetes supplies if the following is provided to the school:

  1. written permission from the parent/guardian; and
  2. written provider order with an attestation stating both the diagnosis, and that the student has demonstrated they can effectively administer the medication(s).

Independent carry and use of medications means that your child will be responsible to have their medication available during school and all school sponsored activities and take their own medicine without any help.  Staff support would be provided only in an emergency. Students may self-carry only; inhalers, epinephrine auto injectors, insulin, glucagon, diabetic supplies and in rare circumstances, other medications requiring a rapid delivery to prevent negative health outcomes.
