Medication Policy

Wisconsin Lutheran School does not supply non-prescription drugs or pain relievers for student use. Any student requiring any type of non-prescription medication must have parental approval and bring the item from home. Please note that this includes cough drops and throat lozenges. All drugs or medications must be turned in to the office. Wisconsin statutes require that if prescription or non-prescription drugs or medications are to be taken or administered at school, WLS must have written authorization from the parent or guardian. The written authorization must include:

  • The name of the medication
  • Dosage
  • The time of day the medication is to be administered
  • The duration of time the medication is to be administered
  • Signature of the physician or parent

Wisconsin statutes also require prescription and non-prescription drugs to come to school in their original pharmacy-labeled container or original manufacturer's packaging. Please make sure these containers are also labeled with your family name and contact information.

Inhalers and EpiPens are not required to be turned in the office. However, a form is required to be on file if those products are needed.

Pre-printed forms are available from the school office or can be downloaded from the links on the right.
