Change in TCSD Over-the-Counter Medicine Policy
The Mississippi Department of Education has recently informed schools of a monumental shift in how school nurses are to handle the administration of over-the-counter drugs such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen, and Benadryl. Beginning Monday, October 31, 2022, if you wish for a Tishomingo County School District school nurse to be allowed to give your child an over-the-counter medication, you must have your child’s primary medical provider execute a standing order for your child.
Until the District is in possession of this standing order, our school nurses will not be allowed to give your child any such medication without a parent physically present. We are sorry for the inconvenience. We at TCSD want to respond as quickly as possible so that we can continue to provide the best care for your children.
Provide the form below to your doctor and return to your school nurse:
