Asthma and Anaphylaxis Medication
Asthma and anaphylaxis are life-threatening conditions, and students with those conditions are entitled to possess and self-administer prescription medication while on Compass Rose property or at school-related events.
Student possession and self-administration of asthma or anaphylaxis medication at school requires the student to demonstrate their ability to self-administer the medication to the student’s physician or other licensed health care provider and the school nurse, if available. Requirements also include written authorization from the student’s parent and physician or other licensed health care provider on file in the front office indicating the student is capable of independently administering their own asthma or emergency anaphylaxis medication. Medication in a Page 28 of 88 student’s possession must be in an original container with a prescription label. Please note that most pharmacies will place a label on the inhaler device upon request.
