Health Office » Medications



Per state and district guidelines, all medication (including over the counter medication) MUST have written parent and physician permission on file (annually) with the school health office. Additionally, all medications (including over the counter medications) must be kept in the health office- except for asthma inhalers, epi-pens and diabetic supplies. They still require all the same forms, but can be carried on the student at both physician order and parent request. You can download the Medication Form. Return completed forms to the health office or fax to 951-253-7319.


If your child requires medication while at school:

        1.Print the appropriate form(s) from the district website

        2.Sign the parent/guardian portion

        3. Have your child’s physician complete the physician’s portion

        4. Make an appointment with the school’s Health Office to return the completed form with your

           child’s medication (original, labeled container required)

If your child uses a nebulizer medication at school, parents should speak to their doctor about switching the delivery to an inhaler. This is important because COVID-19 is an Aerosolized Transmissible Disease and nebulizers generate aerosol particles that can carry viruses and bacteria deep into the lung.
