Whenever possible, children should be given needed medication by their parents at home. Littleton Public Schools encourages parents to work with their doctors to prescribe dosages that can be given at home rather than at school. However, if children must receive medication during the school day, it must be given by a registered nurse or someone under the direction and supervision of the nurse.

The school must have a permission signed by both parent and physician that clearly states th ename of the medication, dose, and the exact time it is to be administered at school. Please use the Medication Authorization form for any medication (including over the counter medications) brought to school.
