New Jersey State law prohibits administration of any medication, including Tylenol, Advil, or any other “over the counter” medication without a doctor’s order and a parents or guardians written consent.
- All over the counter medications must be supplied from home, labeled with the student’s name, and brought in by an adult.
- Students may not carry any medication on their person for the purpose of self-administration. A doctor’s order and parent’s or guardian’s written consent is necessary. Your physician must complete the Ramsey School District Medication Self-Administration Form or write on a prescription or office letter head that your child is responsible, has been instructed in the proper use of the inhaler or Epi-Pen, and may carry his/her inhaler or Epi-Pen with him/her at all times.
- Any medication administered in school must be in its original container, and labeled with the student’s name.
- A fax will be accepted from the prescribing physician, and parent or guardian, if your child needs to take medication in school. It is the parent’s responsibility to call the doctor to request a medication order.
