Disaster Planning

Public schools are generally considered to be safe havens for millions of children and the greatest social institution after the family. However, the recent experiences with natural disasters, in-school violence, and acts of terrorism, demonstrate the need for schools to be prepared for all crisis possibilities - this includes administration of medication. We recommend:

  • Parents/guardians are asked to supply at least a 3-day supply of medications on hand for students who take medications during the school day.
  • Parent/guardian are asked to identify medication that students take outside of school and to whom the missing of three days of medications would pose a serious health risk for the student or others.
  • It is the parent/guardian's responsibility to provide a 3-day supply of these medications and the necessary authorization forms and instructions for these medications.
