in school is not normally a part of education. However, medication is allowed by the Moline Board of Education during school hours when:
1. A doctor says the medicine must be given during the school day to allow the student to attend school.
2. The District medication forms are available in the school office. They must be completed by the doctor, signed by the parent and be on file in the school. Forms are needed for non-prescription drugs including cough drops, Tylenol, etc. Medication should be brought to the school office and picked up by the parent or another responsible person, not the student. Students using inhalers for asthma control, epi-pens for bee stings, diabetic monitoring or other medicines or treatments must have a doctor's written note to "self-administer" their medication.
