The paperwork must contain specific written instructions detailed dosage amount and time. The medication must also be accompanied by it's original packaging with the child's name and dosage as well as paperwork from the Doctor who has prescribed the medication. No child is to keep medication in their school bag. The only exception to this rule is a 'puffer' used for Asthma.
