Medication/Treatment Orders from Your Child's Healthcare Provider
Parents/guardians must renew a child's medication/treatment authorization forms at the beginning of each school year. FCPS has posted medication/treatment authorization forms at www.fcps.org/forms. They are also available at each school.
To help make your child’s first day a success, please bring:
- any medication your child needs
- all completed forms
to your child's school health room during the week of August 18 between 9 AM and 3 PM.
Important! Please check the expiration date on the pharmacy label before bringing medication to the health room with the authorization form. Maryland law allows prescription medication to be used only for 1 year beyond date of issue or expiration date indicated on the medication, whichever comes first.
For more information, please see FCPS Regulation 400-23 (Adobe PDF File, opens in new window).
Note: Students may bring and apply over-the-counter sunscreen without a written order.
