The Foundation for Blind Children permits administration of either prescription or non prescription medications to enrolled students of the Summer School Program by the school nurse or a designated staff member. In order to ensure the safety of all students, medications must be provided in the original pharmacy container with a pharmacy label clearly marked with your child’s name, date of birth, medication name and dose and how it is administered. Medications must be current (cannot be expired) and the medication needs to be accompanied by a physician’s order. Written authorization signed by the student's parent/guardian must be provided as well.
If you have current orders on file with FBC from the 2015-16 school year, you do not need to get new medical orders unless the orders have changed.
